Desertification Prevention and Control -- Laying the Path for Nature’s Green Comeback
Desertification, a form of environmental degradation, is a problem affecting over 100 countries worldwide. Since the founding of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), the Chinese government has established plantations, installed shelterbelts as windbreaks and for sand stabilization, and launched large-scale reforestation campaigns in order to stop the desert’s encroachment. China’s greening of the Kubuqi Desert, in particular, has received much attention in recent years. It has become known as the Kubuqi Model, providing a new solution for desertification control.
