NBS Good Practices from Chinese Government: Conserving Biodiversity for a Beautiful China

China (2019)

Carrying out biodiversity conservation, basically controlling the biodiversity loss, and effectively protecting ecosystems, species, and genetic diversity can improve the health and integrity of ecosystems. Integrate, healthy and diverse ecosystems are of crucial importance for human beings to reduce the adverse impacts and adapt to climate change, and to have higher viability and resilience when facing climate change. Besides, the implementation of this project can effectively safeguard and expand the areas of forests, grasslands, and wetlands in China, which brings positive results to mitigate adverse impacts of climate change through absorbing CO2 and rebuilding carbon balance.
