Trials allow Tibetan farmers to clarify land ownership

In rural China, the land belongs to all of the residents of a village. Each household is in charge of certain farmland and can pass it on to the next generation but can’t sell or turn the land into other uses. That makes it difficult for farmers to earn any income except from their crops. China started nationwide land transfer trials in 2013 to clarify farmers’ ownerships so that they could lease or mortgage their property. Cultivated fields account for less than 1 percent of agricultural land in the Tibet Autonomous Region and ownership clarification has become a must-do.
