Abstract

Gully regions of Loess Plateau, one of the earliest human settlement areas and one
of the most fragile ecological areas in China, are facing challenges for future development.
As the smallest social units on Loess Plateau, gully villages own large amount of agricultural
population. However, due to unreasonable development planning and the loss of developing
directions, gully villages are gradually disappearing. Based on the practical investigation
of Gansu and Shaanxi province in China, this paper is focused on the main influential
factors for the development of gully villages, and establishes a quantitative evaluating
method for ecological construction. Furthermore, this paper takes typical villages in Chang
Wu County, Shaanxi province, China, as study objects, selects and classifies evaluation
factors, and completes the quantitative evaluation on the suitability and sensitivity of
ecological construction based on relative evaluation standards, which will provide
developing directions and suggestions in the future ecological development.
