One Child Policy

China has nearly a quatre of the worlds population, but only:

  • 7% of the earth's land surface
  • 8% of the bio-climatic resuources
  • 5% of the worlds fossil fuels 

China's one child policy came into force in 1979.

The following benefits became availiable:

  • Free birth control + Family planning advice
  • Cash Bonuses
  • Improved Housing
  • Free Education
  • Free Medical Care
  • THE ABOVE ARE ONLY AVALIABLE IF THEY ONLY HAVE ONE CHILD. + ANYONE BREACHING THIS WOULD LOSE THESE BENEFITS, AND FACEFINANCIAL PENALTIES.

Despite the fact that, this could be described as succesful, it is not 100% succesful. The birth rate has gone down between when it came to power, and 1995, but the birth rate has been up and down, not always consistent.

  • THE POLICY HAS PREVENTED 300 MILLION BIRTHS.
