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).

Determinants of out-migration in rural China: effects of payments for ecosystem services

In this article, we study the impacts of the two payments for ecosystem services (PES) programs on individual out-migration decisions. PES programs: Conversion of Cropland to Forest Program (CCFP) Ecological Welfare Forest Program (EWFP) The research is highlighted in research news hosted by the Population Dynamics Research Centers
