Common Grasslands in Asia

A Comparative Analysis of Chinese and Mongolian Grasslands

Edited by Colin G. Brown

This book unravels the complexities of the grassland systems of Mongolia and northern China, identifying the ways in which policies and incentives can be strengthened to improve grassland condition and herder livelihoods. Offering a comparative analysis of policies and incentives, chapters argue for a mix of incentives and associated policy measures to benefit both grassland conditions and herder lifestyles.

Chapter 7: Understanding policies and preferences

Jeff Bennett, Li Ping, Zhang Bao, Enkh-Orchlon Lkhagvadorj and Duinkherjav Bukhbat


The focus of this chapter is on an empirical understanding of the value of the environmental benefits to flow from changes in grassland policies and incentives. There are three main parts to the empirical analysis that draw upon choice modelling analysis and contingent behaviour analysis, namely: the preferences of herders towards alternative policies; how herders would respond to these alternative policies in terms of livestock numbers and management; and the preferences and valuation of those who enjoy the environmental and social benefits resulting from changed policy settings. Where possible, comparisons are drawn between the empirical analysis in Mongolia and Inner Mongolia.
