This study investigates the hidden linkages among concurrent payments for ecosystem services programs. Major findings & conclusions:
Multiple conservation programs are often implemented in same area(s) or involved same recipients.
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.
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).
This study analyzes the drivers of farmers’ participation in three concurrent strategies of payments for ecosystem services programs using hierarchical linear models.

The book exmaines concurrent green initiatives and their spillover effects on environmnetal conservation and mangement to reveal their impacts on conservation effectiveness, drawing on a range of international case studies all over the world.
