This paper presents a holistic analysis of cultivated land use change concerning the 3 goals of the Cultivated Land Protection (CLP), i.e., grain security, ecological security and harmonizing regional development. Grain-for-green policy has contributed to improving ecological state especially in the western provinces. Effects of the land macro-control of the CLP on harmonizing regional development were significant. Moreover, cultivated land use change in 1999–2007 points out the way of the evolving policy in the future. From the viewpoint of normative concept of multifunctionality, the AA. discuss development of the 3 land functions, i.e., production function, environmental function and carrier function. Finally, they propose to emphasize multifunctional land management based on regional differences to promote transition of the CLP
