The working paper provides county-level case studies of ecological compensation in the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

Eco-compensation has become an important policy framework in the PRC, involving a wide range of programs that promote conservation and environmental restoration while supporting local livelihoods and poverty alleviation. It uses a package of incentive-based policies and regulatory instruments to tackle environmental issues such as water pollution, biodiversity loss, land degradation, or deforestation. The PRC’s experience can offer useful insights to other countries facing similar challenges in environmental management.
