PIERI-12213 The Impacts of "Land of Love, Water Cellar for Mothers"

Abstract

In this proposed study, we want to estimate the impacts of the “Land of Love, Water Cellar for Mothers” project that is launched to address the water scarcity in western China. In these areas, male labourers flock to cities as a result of China's social transformation, leaving women there as the main workforce in the poverty- and drought-stricken countryside. We intend to evaluate the effects of building water cellars on women’s income and health conditions. We also want to explore how the project promotes women working outside home, migrating to cities and/or setting up their own business. Moreover, we are also interested in how the project changes women’s status in intra-household relationships, family collective activities and women’s empowerment. Finally, we want to study how the impacts depend on local conditions (such as local transportation and so on).
