Rural Public Investment and Benefit in Sichuan's Hilly and Mountainous Areas

Using representative sampling survey data, we take the case of roads, domestic water, irrigation facilities, clinics and schools, to give an overview of the status quo of rural public investment in Sichuan's hilly and mountainous areas in the period 2005-2008; conduct comprehensive analysis of public investment benefit, from the status quo of supply and demand, social benefit and villagers' satisfaction. The results show that the social benefit arising from the construction of road projects is good, while the social benefit arising from the construction of irrigation facilities is poor; the matching effect of supply and demand of public investment is poor, especially for the investment in irrigation facilities; on the whole, villagers' satisfaction with public investment has been promoted, but most of the villagers are still unsatisfied with the current irrigation facilities. The major capital source of rural public investment is from the government, but from the perspective of the villagers' demand, we should further increase the public financial input.
