In 2014 research by the Water (WAT) Program was carried out under the NSFC-IIASA Project on Land Use Change in Mountainous Areas in China in 2014: A Chongqing case study. These activities led to considerable progresses in the modeling and analysis work on the econometric modeling assessment of the contribution of intra-village land circulation market to the reduction of farmland abandonment rates. The following are among the highlights of research undertaken in this project (see also   ):
