Agent-based modeling of the effects of conservation policies on social-ecological feedbacks between cropland abandonment and labor migration

Model Development ABM-CALM: Agent-Based Model for Cropland Abandonment and Labor Migration Overview of ABM-CALM. This paper presents reserach on the development and application of ABM-CALM that simulates bidirectional social-ecological feedbacks.

Understanding the mediating role of labor out-migration in household income generation and distribution under a reforestation policy in rural China

Reforestation Policy & Rural Livelihoods Income inequality is a critical issue of socio-economic development, particularly in rural areas where forest-dependent people are often vulnerable to the intervention of forest policies. This study investigates income distribution and inequality of rural households influenced by China’s largest reforestation policy, the Congversion of Cropland to Forest Program (CCFP).
