This paper designed to reveal the key issues of rural sustainable development and explain how to land consolidation affect rural sustainable development in China and put forward some policy suggestion. We found that land property, land-use change, land fragmentation, labor force migration, and urban-rural inequality are the key factors that affect rural sustainable development in China. So, we suggest that policymakers should strength land registration and certification to provide a more reliable land property.
