The one-child policy in China - Centre for Public Impact Legitimacy Stakeholder Engagement Weak The main stakeholder behind this initiative was the central government, which was very concerned that uncontrolled growth in the population could threaten the country's ambitions for prosperity. There is no evidence of consultations with stakeholders at the local or institutional level before this policy was implemented. However, there were incentives put in place to ensure the compliance of local officials, in the form of fiscal and career rewards for achieving birth targets, and penalties for falling short.

Categories Chart: From Pyramids to Skyscrapers From pyramid to bell to high-rise building — that is how the age structure of the world’s population will have developed from 1950 to 2100, according to UN calculations, which is a good thing. It means that we can say farewell to the pyramid. which to many still symbolizes the ideal age structure of a population: lots of industrious young folks and few dependent old people. First and foremost, however, the pyramid means that in every age group many millions of people die. To illustrate this, imagine you could climb the stairs of the perfectly shaped German population pyramid of 1910. With each further step, or rather year, tens of thousands of people would vanish from the statistic. Infants, toddlers, adolescents, twenty-, thirty-, forty-year-olds, most of them died of illnesses like of scarlet fever, diphtheria, diarrhea, typhoid, tuberculosis or in childbed.
A Real-Time Map of Births and Deaths - James Hamblin In 1950, there were 2.5 billion humans. Today there are just over 7 billion. In another 30 years, according to U.S. Animated Map: The 20 Most Populous Cities in the World by 2100 In Africa Alone, 13 Cities Will Pass NYC in Size The Chart of the Week is a weekly Visual Capitalist feature on Fridays. If you look at a modern map of the world’s most populous cities, you’ll notice that they are quite evenly distributed around the globe. Metropolises like Moscow, New York, Tokyo, Cairo, or Rio de Janeiro are spread apart with very different geographic and cultural settings, and practically every continent today can claim at least one of the world’s 20 most populous cities.
10 Maps That Will Change How You View The World Maps are one of those things you can lose yourself in for hours.

Now, in an age of seemingly endless information, maps are more abundant, advanced and fascinating than ever before. Here are some of the most interesting maps we could find; hopefully, they will leave you looking at our little "pale blue dot" with a fresh perspective.

Watch The Movements Of Every Refugee On Earth Since The Year 2000 In 2016, more refugees arrived in Uganda–including nearly half a million people from South Sudan alone–than crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. While the numbers in Africa are increasing, the situation isn’t new: As the world continues to focus on the European refugee crisis, an equally large crisis has been unfolding in Africa. A new visualization shows the flow of refugees around the world from 2000 to 2015, and makes the lesser-known story in Africa–and in places like Sri Lanka in 2006 or Colombia in 2007–as obvious as what has been happening more recently in Syria. Each yellow dot represents 17 refugees leaving a country, and each red dot represents refugees arriving somewhere else. (The full version of the map, too large to display here, represents every single refugee in the world with a dot.) The lab began working on its Explorables project, a platform designed to help make sense of big data, four years ago.
