"real attempt at population and resource planning" cannot be counted so that we use little before that part.

We could also use few for uncountable why go for little?

No we don't use few for uncountable things.

Little -> No.

A little -> Very few.

few -> almost zero (used with countable noun).
little -> almost zero (used with uncountable noun).

A few -> small amount (used with countable noun).
A little -> small amount (used with uncountable noun).

The world has seen small (either zero or very small in number ) real attempt (uncountable) at population and resource planning.

So the answer will be either 'little' or 'A little'. Little will be the answer as A little is not there in the option.
