Chinall wristbandsa"s Kubuqi model offers solution to desertification
BEIJING - China"s success in reforesting the once barren Kubuqi Desert has seen the region gradually prosper in the development of the green economy, while the country seeks to share and promote the model worldwide.
The seventh Kubuqi International Desert Forum kicked off Saturday in the Kubuqi Desert in northern China"s Inner Mongolia autonomous region, attracting delegates and experts from home and abroad to discuss desertification.
Kubuqi is the seventh largest desert in China, covering an area of 18,600 square kilometers. It was once the source of frequent sandstorms hitting Beijing.
Over the past three decades, farmers and herdsmen in Kubuqi planted Chinese medicinal herbs, such as liquorice, to improve soil, built photovoltaic power stations for electricity and fostered tourism.
These efforts not only contributed to the greening of more than 6,000 square kilometers of Kubuqi, but also lifted 102,000 people out of poverty.
The core of success at Kubuqi is its sustainable business model, and the establishment of a system that incorporates policy instruments, private sector investment and active participation of locals, according to a policy report from the United Nations Environment Programme.
The greening project in Kubuqi has offered a model for the world to tackle desertification, said representatives of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification.
China has made great progress in the fight against desertification in the past few years, with shrinking degraded land and reduced poverty in desertified areas.
The area of desertified land in the country shrank by an annual average of 1,980 square km in 2010-2014, a sharper decline than the 1,717 square km for 2005-2009, and 1,283 square km for 2000-2004.
For the 2016-2020 period, China aims to rehabilitate 10 million hectares of desertified land and turn more than half of the country"s reclaimable desert into green land.
In early September, China will host a United Nations meeting on fighting desertification in Inner Mongolia, which is expected to draw a roadmap to end desert expansion by 2030.hen fest wristbands fabric wristbands make your own rubber band bracelets tyvek wristbands printed wristbands
