Qui, Yaqin; Jia, Yangwen; Zhao, Jincheng; Wang, Xuehong; Bennett, Jeffrey; Zhou, Zuhao


An economic valuation of flood reductions arising from land use changes induced by the Conversion of Cropland to Forest and Grassland Program (CCFGP) in China is detailed in this paper. A distributed hydrologic model is used to analyze and predict changes in the probability of flood occurrences in the Yellow River Basin (YRB) due to revegetation activities under the CCFGP. The expected value of flood reductions due to the avoided flood damage potential is then estimated. Losses brought about by...[Show more]
