Weideland Politik in China: A review of China’s rangeland management policies. Country Report June 2014 (2014)

YanBo Li , Gongbuzeren, and WenJun Li

This Position Paper was prepared for the New Perspectives on Climate Resilient Drylands Development Project. This report reviews government and academic perspectives on the impacts of  herders resettlement policies and the household responsibility system on ecosystems, animal husbandry, livelihoods, and pastoral society, as well as on the causes of policy failures. The perspectives of two schools are described. Based on the findings, the authors argue that the negative outputs of these policies may ultimately stem from one significant root: the vague understanding of pastoralism among policy makers.
