In order to study the extent of the impact of air pollution on poverty vulnerability and provide a reference for governments to formulate and adjust policy approaches, in this paper, CNRDS and CHIPS micro-survey data were used to test the effects of air pollution on poverty vulnerability by using the Probit model, and the tendency value matching (PSM) method was adopted to correct the selective bias. The basic results show that air pollution is significantly negatively correlated with farmers’ vulnerability to poverty, that is, the higher the proportion of air pollution, the lower the economic vulnerability of farmers. And the effect of air pollution on farmers’ economic vulnerability is U-shaped. The main contribution of this paper refers to its assessment of the poverty reduction effect of air pollution from a forward-looking perspective, which can effectively maintain the results of poverty relief, improve the effectiveness of poverty-relief inputs and the continuity of poverty-relief effects, and achieve a stable poverty relief of the poor.
