Summary

Congjiang County is located in Qiangdongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefeture, Guizhou, China at vast mountain areas. This area has several ethnic minorities such as Miao, Dong, Yao, Zhuang and Shui, among others.

The rice-fish-duck system has a long history with strong local and folk characteristics in Congjiang county. Rice-fish-duck agro-ecosystem is a unique mode of production and land use by Dong people on basis of long-term exploration under the limited natural condition. This approach effectively saves land resources and achieves a natural three – dimensional agriculture by relieving the contradiction between human and nature, thus providing multiple goods and services.
