Poverty alleviation and development
This chapter discusses Ningxia’s poverty alleviation and development programmes which have been prioritized to improve farmers’ incomes and have aimed at the self-development of poor regions and poor populations. The programmes raised farmer’s net income in eight key poverty counties from 987 Yuan in 2000 to 3,415 Yuan in 2010 — a net increase of 2,428 Yuan ($385) and annual growth of 13.2 per cent. The average farmer income was over 3,800 Yuan ($603) in 2011. For the future, Ningxia needs to promote development systematically, fully utilize the important role of the Yellow River Economic Area, and improve the working, living, and ecological conditions in poor areas.
