Facing severe ecological damages and a large population, it is imperative for farmers of the Sichuan Province to seek alternative land-use practices to optimize their production.

This study examines the incentives and initiatives supporting the successful agroforestry systems in Shandong and evaluates whether such an experience would be successful in Sichuan as well.
