Cultivated Land Conversion in China and the Potential for Food Security and Sustainability

Published By: Asia Research Centre (ARC) | Published Date: January, 01 , 2010

With over a billion people in China, the issue of cultivated land conversion is extremely important both in terms of food security and environmental sustainability. This paper investigates the relationship between cultivated land, environment, and food security in China; and seeks to identity the main challenges facing China in terms of arable land protection. It further discusses the concept and practical implications of land governance in relation to food and environmental security, and suggests that comprehensive, human-centred and sustainable land governance is required to enhance China’s food security and environmental sustainability.
