    Abstract Soil erosion resulted from human activity and related land use and climate change threaten our societal and economic thriving. A major policy response has been putting in place to mitigate the effects of soil erosion, such as in Europe and Asia. The main objective of this work is to assess the impacts of the policy response in China – the implementation of the Grain for Green Program – on ecosystem services, including carbon sequestration and water supply. A combination of bottom-up and top-down approaches is applied to highlight the critical linkages in soil conservation measures of the Grain for Green Program for managing the trade-off among ecosystem services. Lack of sustainable forest management is the primary driver of the intensified water crisis, particularly in drylands. A holistic understanding of the interconnected characters of soil conservation, water supply, and carbon sequestration is vital for developing a policy response to soil erosion. Land evaluation and trade-off analysis can facilitate the identification of the critical intervention point to reinforce the water and climate co-benefits in actions to address soil erosion.
