Annotation:::: The paper focuses on the poverty alleviation programme related to mountain migration in Yunnan province, and explores ways to fulfil the food guarantee for poor households in mountainous areas during the period of transition. Based on background information provided, Yunnan is an old border region of China consisting of a largely impoverished ethnic population. Since the initiation of reforms and opening up to the outside world, the implementation of a series of effective policies and measures have enhanced economic development in the mountainous areas of Yunnan. Using the method of empirical study to assess the policies and concrete measures for promoting the economic development and poverty alleviation in mountainous areas, the paper finds that mountain migration may contribute to ensuring the food guarantee for poor households in mountainous areas during the period of socioeconomic transition. Additionally, the authors state that upland rice production is an effective production mode for poor mountain households in southwest Yunnan.The paper is part of a project financially supported by the National Natural Sciences Fund titled “Food Guarantee for Poor Households in Mountainous Areas During the Period of Transformation: An Analysis of the Upland Rice Producing Areas of Southwestern Yunnan” numbered 70573122.
