ABSTRACT
Sanjiangyuan Area is located in Tibetan Plateau in Qinghai Province in China. It's the source of Yangtze River, Huanghe River and Lancangjiang River. Since the ecological environment became worse in recent decades, Qinghai government conducted an environmental migration project to move the herdsman out of Sanjiangyuan Area to protect the environment. Using the data we collected in five environmental migration resettlement villages in 2009 and the basic information of the non-migrants, this paper calculated the index of migration differences to examine the selectivity between migrants and non-migrants. The policy implication will also be discussed in this paper.
