China prioritizes environmental conservation

Known as the world's largest polluter and the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases, China has just presented an ecological protection plan for the next fifteen years. L’the objective of this protection plan is to extend the country's forest cover by one-third over a period of 15 years. ” La Chine priorise la conservation de l’environnement.

Un paradoxe « positif »

Indeed, China remains the world's largest polluter. And it is also the largest emitter of greenhouse gases. Yet, the country has made ecology and the environment one of its priorities. It's a paradox when you pause these two assertions on paper. Whatever it is, it's a very good thing.

According to the Think-tank Center for American Progress, environmental policy conducted before 2014 People's Republic of China was similar to that of the United States before 1970. In theory, environmental laws are pretty strict. But their application is left to local governments, who prefer to promote industrial development. And state regulations restrict the activities of NGOs and journalists in environmental protection. And this has led to ecological problems.

But since April 2014, the Chinese government has tightened its environmental policy.

La Chine a donc pris conscience qu’il devait partir en guerre against the Pollution. Thus, le Président chinois Xi Jinping a déclaré : "We must firmly establish this concept of socialist ecological civilization. Develop a harmonious relationship between man and nature and do everything possible to protect the environment for future generations"

Despite the coronavirus crisis, China's Ministry of Finance will affect nearly 52 billion euros to ecology and environmental protection in this year's 2020. In this framework, China has just presented a major ecological protection plan for the next fifteen years.

Extend les zones protégées

The objective is to extend its forest cover to 26 % and control of 75 % recoverable sandy land. The country will maintain the area of its natural forests 200 million hectares, and 60 % wetlands will be protected. In addition, more than a third of the country's natural coasts will be untouchable.

According to the Ministry of Natural Resources, over the past few decades, China has built 2 750 nature reserves that cover 1,47 million square kilometres, and represent 15 % the size of the country.

Last August, National Forestry and Grasslands Administration announced that China's forest cover had increased by 12 % in the years 1980 to 22,9 % en 2019.

They planned to promote nine major ecological protection projects in the past few years, 15 next years. These projects will cover many parts of the country, including the Yangtze River, The Yellow River, the forest area of northeastern China and the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, as well as the Greater Bay Area Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao.

However, challenges remain high because some regions are "sacrificing the environment to stimulate short-term economic growth" according to Wu Xiao, Director of the Department for Agriculture and Rural Economy at the Commission.

"Protecting water resources"

In reality, the country seems to have realized that resources such as water must be brought under control. Also according to Wu Xiao, their challenge is to protect the country's water resources. « Un système à solutions multiples doit être construit avec une plus grande implication du nouveau support technologique ».

Under the plan, China says it will at least own 18 % its territorial space as a nature reserve by the end of the 2035.

Despite everything, with its industrial base, China remains the world's biggest polluter. We are even talking about ever-increasing pollution, Unfortunately.
