Paper Abstract

At present the study on land use/cover change from microscale in the typical district is one of the important studies of the LUCC. And the Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) is also a widely adopted research method in this field. In this article, we selected a typical district in the mountain areas of west Henan province and studied the human driving mechanism of LUCC by means of PRA from the microscale. The conclusion is that the action of the committee of the villages, the policy, the concept of rural inhabitants, comparative advantage and the development of rural economy are the main driving factors at the typical district in Yiluo River Basin.
