The e-book is organised in 3 sections. half One reports the historical past of land administration in China from 1949 to 1998, exploring the stipulations that ended in the advent of GfG, and evaluating it to different reforestation courses. half bargains an summary of GfG, describing the timeline of this system, reimbursement paid to farmers, the principles pertaining to land and plant choice, the level to which those ideas have been undefined, the attitudes of farmers in the direction of this system, and how within which this system is equipped and carried out by way of numerous kingdom actors. half 3 discusses the effect of the GfG, from either ecological and socio-economic standpoints, taking a look at the industrial advantages that consequence from partaking within the GfG, the impression of the GfG throughout neighborhood economies, the redistribution of the hard work strength and the sustainability of this system, specifically the query of what's going to ensue to the switched over land while funds to farmers end.

The range of the program is enormous: 4,480 km from east to west and 560–1,460 km from south to north (Li et al. 2012). The region involves 551 counties in 13 provinces (autonomous regions or The Six Reforestation Programs 27 Fig. 3 Cumulative amount of land under the NFPP (a) and GFG (b). The dashed line shows targets that had been set for 2010 (Source: Liu et al. 2008) municipalities): Heilongjiang, Jilin, Liaoning, Hebei, Shanxi, Shaanxi, Gansu and Qinghai, Tianjin City, Beijing City, the Inner Mongolia, Ningxia and Xinjiang autonomous regions.

1) (Li et al. 2012). The shelterbelt development project in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River involves relevant areas in 31 provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities). It was expected that 180,000 km2 of land would be afforested, 73,300 km2 of low-efficiency shelterbelt improved, and 373,300 km2 of existing forests properly managed and protected during the period from 2001 to 2010 (Lei and Zhu 2002). The coastal shelterbelt project involves 195 counties in 11 provinces. The planned afforestation area is 35,600 km2.

7 As a result, several years passed with very little oversight pertaining to forest health and management. Planners who would have been able to address new problems were discouraged from doing so, fearful of political reprisals. In the words of Mac- Farquhar: ‘If most new ideas are going to be attacked, the safest course is to continue doing whatever you were doing before’ (Macfarquhar and Fairbank 1978b: 504). These fears lasted a long time – until the early 1980s. The tremendous loss of human resources made it impossible to address and redress the large-scale deforestation caused by the Great Leap Forward.
