In this proposed study, we want to estimate the impacts of the â€œLand of Love, Water Cellar for Mothersâ€ 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 womenâ€™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 womenâ€™s status in intra-household relationships, family collective activities and womenâ€™s empowerment. Finally, we want to study how the impacts depend on local conditions (such as local transportation and so on).
