An analysis of rural livelihoods is carried out to understand the micro- and macro-level processes that shape the well-being of rural households during urbanization. The analysis is based on quantitative surveys and qualitative interviews and field observations across eight villages around Poyang Lake. I examine rural households’ livelihoods against the broad development background in China, and within their local environmental contexts, which also define their exposure to flood hazards. While urbanization has a positive effect on reducing the sensitivity of rural livelihoods to flooding, a variety of constraints, including some institutional factors and macro-level processes, confront rural households in developing viable livelihoods. I discuss how development programs and policy may simultaneously promote rural development and mitigate flood impacts in the Poyang Lake area.
