• In the past China has been prone to floods and famine. The one child policy was introduced to ensure China could feed its people. If the policy had not been introduced there would be more hunger and poverty in China today.

    • Another reason why the one child policy was introduced is because china wanted to have cars and modern technologies just like the rest of the world at the time.

    • China holds one fifth of the world’s population, with this amount of people using cars it has had horrible effects on the environment.

    • Just by breathing in the air in Beijing today is the same as smoking 20 cigarettes a day.

    • Life would not be possible in the cities if the population increased any higher than average. Last year there was 1.3 billion people in China and is expected to rise to 1.6 billion people by 2050/

    • The price of school fees has risen rapidly this now represents 27% of an average families budget for only one child.

    • Children have had the chance to get an education.

    • The one child policy specifies that each couple living in the city should only have one child unless one or both of the couple are from an ethnic minority or they are both only children.

    • China has lost almost 7% of its farmland due to development in the past decade.

    • If it is bad enough now with the 1.3 billion people what would it have been like without the one child policy?
