Loess Plateau; hilly and gully region; Rural Revitalization; mode innovation; sustainable development

Document Type



The great achievements of ecological construction have been made on Loess Plateau since the founding of the People's Republic of China, but the contradiction among population, farmland and grain production has become increasingly prominent in some regions. Document No. 1 of the Central Committee put forward "Opinions on the Implementation of the Strategy of Rural Revitalization" in 2018. On the basis of our many research and previous reference analysis, here we put forward the sustainable revitalization model of hilly and gully region on the Loess Plateau:namely, the coupling development model of ecology, economy, and society, i.e. cutting hilltops to build basins for developing fruit industry and traditional Chinese medicine of ecological gardens; constructing grass-shrub complex ecosystem on the hillside; developing facility agriculture under hills for proper gully control and ditch construction; and scientific construction of reservoirs at the small watershed to provide source of drip irrigation water for agriculture production such as medicine-fruit garden and facility. Therefore, all these measures are foundations for building a new socialist countryside in the hilly and gully region of the Loess Plateau, which is effective in governance, ecologically livable, prosperous in industry, rich in life, and civilized in rural style.
