Grade 9 Unit 1 Topic 2 Section C


in 2 0 10, the world’s population was about 6.8 billion. More than three billion people live in Asia now. That’s almost half of the world’s population.
China has the largest population in the world, and about one fifth of the people in the world live in China. Because of the large population, there is less living space for each family. And it is difficult for lots of people to find jobs. At the same time, the large population has caused many other difficulties for the whole nation. For example, it is hard for China to supply energy and water to satisfy people’s daily needs. Most cities are more crowded than before, and the traffic is much heavier. Natural environments arc becoming worse and worse. The large population has been a serious problem.
So far, our government has taken many measures to control the population. One is known as the one-child policy. It has worked well in controlling China’s population. Thanks to the policy, China is developing quickly and people’s living conditions are improving rapidly. However, the population problem is still serious in China. We still have a long way to go.
