Strong land rights help build sustainable supply chains and create a more stable, resilient, and productive environment for business. These efforts help companies obtain social license, or the confidence and trust that a business will behave in a legitimate, transparent, and socially acceptable way, within the communities where they operate.

This study elicits the risk preferences of rural households through a field experiment conducted in Shaanxi Province using the Holt-Laury mechanism that considers the effects of implementing the Sloping Land Conversion Program (SLCP) on the risk preferences of farmers. The program has significantly changed the structure of farmers' productive property, which may further influence their risk attitudes. This study reveals that household geographic and demographic characteristics have a significant effect on the risk preferences of participants in the experiment.
