Since the initiation of reform and opening up, China has been steadfastly pursuing a top-down approach to low fertility policy in order control the unrestricted growth of population. However, in recent years, as China's fertility rate continues to decline unabatedly, economic and social risks have accumulated and gradually come to the fore. Consequently, China's fertility policy has undergone a transformation from "institutional restrictions" towards a more compassionate approach rooted in "social support" The 14th Five-Year Economic Plan issued by the Chinese government also underscores the imperative of establishing a comprehensive policy framework aimed at bolstering fertility rates to effectively address population aging challenges. In terms of fostering an environment conducive to childbearing through strategic policies, which stakeholders will be impacted by the implementation of these supportive measures in China? And how will this nation with limited prior policy experience respond? This paper aims to meticulously elucidate the factors and mechanisms influencing regional fertility rates while delving into diverse stakeholders' demands via case analysis in different regions and Advocacy Coalition Framework, and ultimately seeking potential avenues for policy innovation and policy study.
