Economic Effect of Ecological Reconstruction in Poyang Lake

Yong Zheng, Yue Fu, Hua Yin

Abstract

It is difficult to show the economic value of environment improvement. By using the counter factual policy evaluation method, we evaluated the economic value of the ecological reconstruction project in Poyang Lake. Our results show that the economic effect of the implementation of environmental projects is significant. After the implementation of the project, Jiangxi Province economic growth rate increased by 3 percentage points from the 1 quarter of 2014 to the 4 quarter of 2013.
