    The agreement is part of a subsidy and reward program instigated by the government for herdsmen in eight regions and provinces: Xinjiang, the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, the Tibet autonomous region, the Ningxia Hui autonomous region and the provinces of Yunnan, Qinghai, Sichuan and Gansu. These are the poorest regions of China.

    It is a good thing that environmental issues are being addressed, but the issue is are there no other ways to do so than cause this much of hardship for the poorest of the poor?
