Terrace farming along Yangtze River, China

This photos shows a traditional village located along the upper Yangtze River. The farming on the steep slope has led to soil erosion; fortunately, the sloping land conversion program, initiated by the China government was targeting the farming on those sloped (marginal) land. Whether the program is effective and efficient is still not clear.
