Abstract:

On the basis of theoretical analysis, this study empirically analyzed the spatial-temporal characteristics of the coupling relationship of urban-rural coordinated development and rural poverty governance in China by using national time series data and provincial cross-sectional data. The results show that: (1) From 2000 to 2017, the coupling coordination degree of urban-rural coordinated development and rural poverty governance was between 0.4928-0.6111, which has entered a relatively mature stage, has shown a slow increasing trend, and has been developing in the direction of benign interaction. (2) Spatially, the coupling coordination degree of 27 provinces in 2010, 2013, and 2017 showed a decreasing trend from east to northeast, central China, and west. During the study period, the coupling coordination degree of each province increased, but the increase was different among the regions. (3) According to the change of coupling coordination degree of urban-rural coordinated development and rural poverty governance from 2010 to 2017, 27 provinces in China can be divided into four grades: high growth, high- medium growth, medium growth, and low growth. Under the guidance of the goal of urban-rural integrated development, according to the coupling characteristics of each region, and combining with their own resources endowment conditions, regions of different coupling types should be adapted to local conditions, strive to achieve an all-round integrated development of urban and rural areas, focusing on the integration of urban and rural space, industrial development, social and public services, and cultural integration.
