Mandatory water saving policies were fulfilled in arid inland river basins of China to address severe ecological problems. Based on questionnaire surveys of 672 randomly selected farmers in Heihe River basin and Shule River basin,the attitudes of local farmers toward mandatory water saving policies were investigated and their influencing factors were analyzed. The majority of the farmers supported the policies of reallocating river water to upper,middle,and lower reaches and controlling household agricultural water use,whereas the majority of them opposed the policies of closing wells and reducing farmland and increasing agricultural water prices. The multivariable regression analyses showed socio-demographic factors sex,age,education and experience as floating worker were not correlated with the attitudes. Structure equation analyses showed that awareness of beneficial consequences of these policies,perception of implementation of these policies,environmental worldviews and collectivism had significant correlations with the attitudes,they could explain 41. 7% of the variance in farmer`s attitudes.
