'Cliffside Villagers' Move to New Homes Amid Poverty Alleviation Efforts in SW China

Ethnic Yi County, Zhaojue, one of the last seven counties in southwest China's Sichuan Province to be removed from the country's list of impoverished counties, moved another 31 households of a "cliffside village" to their new homes as part of the province's largest poverty alleviation project through relocating poor population from inhospitable areas. The Zhaojue County of Sichuan's Liangshan ethnic Yi Autonomous Prefecture launched the relocating process of the poverty alleviation project on May 10, starting moving the county's more than 18,000 villagers in 3,194 impoverished households to their new houses, including the 84 households in the "cliffside village" of Atulie'er.

Cliff village in ethnic minority deep mountians a decade ago, now those makeshift ladders had been all replaced by safe steel ladders, but the government still decides to move those who are willing to leave to a new settlement with free government provided houses and comprehensive supporting facilities like schools, hospitals, shopping centers...

For many local ethnic villagers the great changes in such a short time still feel unreal

A traveler visits a poverty alleviation relocation settlement for ethnic Yi people in SW China. the residents tell this traveler that they used to live in an ethnic Yi village on a mountain top, 660 households all together, they all moved into this settlement in 2019.

The government won't charge them for utility fees and poperty management fees for 5 years, they don't know what the new policies would be after 5 years, probably this policy will be extended or they might have to pay those fees.

After all China is still a communist country, all the wealth is supposed to be shared with the whole population, no one can say anything about this poverty alleviation aid.

Western media won't tell you this side of China, that's why the "true China" really shocks first time China visitors and they made tons of videos about this tremendous shock.

Many people here brag bout their "democracy", but how many " democratic" governments really care and serve their general population? their politicians never make plans exceeding an election term, they never try to pour in huge money during their terms so that future governments can benefit. But many programs such as poverty alleviation, even with great determination, continuation and implementation, often take decades for them to come to fruition.

Yi people are very close to people from Tibet and south east Asia. It was said that their ancestors ran into the deep mountain because of ancient wars.

China and the west both claim that they are the goverment of the people, by the people and for the people. We'll see which one will achieve closer to this ultimate goal.

When you say SW I’m thinking Yunnan....

I’m not sure moving them like thatis good for their cultural heritage, but I’ll wish them good luck.


Too many building projects are also waste of ressources.
These are not government houses, they were built by private real estate developers, their development ran out of money before they can finish their projects. it's a bad investment if anything, if you open a restrarant, there is a risk of losing money, real esate is a high return, high risk business.
Government alleviation housings have enough fund by the government, they won't be running out of money in the middle of the development, and those houses are given for free to the impoverished population by the government, no one needs to buy them while real estate developers projects are meant to make money, they have to find customers to sell.
