Mar. 6, 2018 -- Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Tibet has been improving its environmental protection system and introduced more than 30 local ordinances and regulations on ecological protection.
Heavy polluting enterprises and projects have been strictly forbidden and great efforts have been made to supervise the environmental law enforcement.
More and more local people are benefiting from the poverty alleviation policy of ecological employment. By directly participating in green projects, local farmers and herdsmen have seen an income increase by 3,000 yuan per capita.
As one of the richest biodiversity regions in the world, Tibet has established 61 natural reserves with a total area of more than 410,000 square kilometers.
Tibet insists on promoting harmonious development between human being and nature, and making contribution to ecological environment protection, said Luo Jie, Director-General of the Department of Environmental Protection of Tibet Autonomous Region.
