PIERI-12095 The Rural Household Income and Poverty Reduction effects of Priority Forestry Programs in China

Abstract

Since 1998, Chinese government has launched the Natural Forest Protection Program (NFPP), the Sloping Land Conversion Program, Desertification Combating Program around Beijing and Tianjin (DCBT), the Shelterbelt Development Program in the Three-Norths (the northwestern, north-central, and northeastern regions of China) and the Yangtze River Basin (SBDP), the Wildlife Conservation and Nature Reserve Program (WCNR), and the Industrial Timber Plantation Program (ITPP), many rural households have been involved to these PFPs, which have affected rural households’ income and poverty reduction. Some researchers have taken some researches on the issue, but there is still a great gap to be narrowed. We will use the econometrics methodology such as fixed-effect model, Tobit-model, difference-in-difference model or other models to analyze the effect of rural households’ income and poverty reduction of Priority Forestry Program. We will use the data that we have collected and will collect of 3375 households in 6 provinces. We will prepare several papers, working papers and policy briefs for a international journal and policy decision-makers.
