On Wednesday's Backchat we’re talking about falling birthrates around the world, what it means, and if anything can be done to slow the trend.
China’s population shrank last year for the first time in six decades, and Sichuan province is launching new measures in two weeks’ time to allow unmarried individuals to legally have a child – allowing them to raise a family and enjoy benefits previously reserved only for married couples.
In Japan, Prime Minister Fumio Kushida says he wants his government to double spending on children-related programs because of the falling birthrate.
He says Japan is facing a population crisis that must be solved “solved “now or never”, warning that his country is “on the brink of not being able to maintain social functions”.
Why falling birthrates are considered such a big threat? Can government programmes be effective in mitigating the trend? What else can be done?
