"Green China" improves the appearance of global ecological civilization

in February 2019, NASA released the observation data of two earth satellites, which showed that the earth was greener than 20 years ago! The reason is afforestation and agricultural intensification in China and India. From 2000 to 2017, the global green area increased by 5%. Among them, the increase of vegetation in China accounted for more than 25% of the total increment of global vegetation, ranking first in the world. Among the "China's contributions", 42% came from afforestation

China's efforts to safeguard green development have been recognized by the United Nations Environment Programme. The "Three North" shelterbelt project built in northwest, North and Northeast China has been established by the agency as the "eco economic demonstration area" of the global desert. In September this year, the "incentive and action Award" in the "guardian of the Earth Award", the highest environmental honor of the United Nations, was awarded to the China Internet environmental protection project "ant forest". This is the third consecutive year that China has won this honor after the builder of Saihanba forest farm in Hebei Province and the "thousand villages demonstration and ten thousand villages renovation" project in Zhejiang Province

China's solid achievements in improving the ecological environment and achieving green development cannot be separated from the strategic deployment of the government and the continued strengthening of environmental protection supervision and governance. China proposes that protecting the environment is a basic national policy, raising sustainable development to a national strategy, and that building a resource-saving and environment-friendly society and strengthening the construction of ecological civilization are written into the 13th five year plan of the Chinese government. Ecological civilization is also written into the Constitution and the party constitution of the Communist Party of China

In recent years, China has formulated and revised nine ecological and environmental laws and more than 20 administrative regulations, forming a legal and regulatory system covering the environmental fields of atmosphere, water, soil, natural ecology, nuclear safety, etc. In 2015, China began to implement the "strictest" new environmental protection law. The punishment of illegal enterprises is not capped, and the retirement of environmental law breaking officials is "unavoidable", which has achieved remarkable results in combating environmental violations

China's green development also benefits from the extensive participation of Chinese people in environmental protection. As early as 1981, China launched a nationwide tree planting campaign. The "ant forest" project, which won the "guardian of the Earth Award" this year, is an innovation that combines Internet technology with green environmental protection and encourages ordinary people's low-carbon environmental protection behavior. Users of "ant forest" can reduce the corresponding carbon emissions by walking, taking public transportation, paying water and gas fees and traffic tickets, registering and purchasing tickets, and cultivate a virtual tree by accumulating green energy. Every time users cultivate a virtual tree, "ant forest" and public welfare partners will plant a real tree in China's desertification areas. As of August this year, "ant forest" has driven 500million people to participate in low-carbon life, reduced 7.92 million tons of carbon emissions, and transformed the accumulated green energy into 122 million trees planted in desertification areas

there is an old Chinese saying: "every man is responsible for the rise and fall of the world." It is this sense of mission and arduous efforts that have enabled China, the world's largest developing country, to make great progress and achievements in ecological protection. Over the past 70 years, especially since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, China has attached great importance to ecological environmental protection, made great efforts to governance, and improved the environment at a fast speed, which is rare in the world. Take air quality as an example. In the past six years, the average concentration of PM2.5 and the concentration of sulfur dioxide in China have been reduced at a double-digit rate every year. This large country with a population of nearly 1.4 billion embarked on the road of green development, which itself is a great contribution to the construction of global ecological civilization

climate change is a common challenge facing mankind, and the construction of ecological civilization requires global participation. As a major negative country, China has always insisted on expanding international cooperation to deal with climate change. It has ratified and implemented more than 30 multilateral conventions or protocols related to the ecological environment, actively participated in the automatic collection of corresponding experimental forces in global environmental governance, and took the lead in issuing the national plan for China to implement the 2030 agenda for sustainable development. China is also determined to build the "the Belt and Road" into a "green road" through the organization of standardization pilot demonstration, and has signed more than 50 cooperation documents with countries along the route and relevant international organizations to establish the "the Belt and Road" green development international alliance

at the United Nations Climate Action summit held at the end of September, China made it clear that it would earnestly implement its obligations under the United Nations Framework Convention on climate change and the Paris Agreement, and achieve the goal of independent contribution as scheduled. At the same time, China also stressed that we should adhere to multilateralism and abide by the basic principles of "common but differentiated" in dealing with climate change. This is China's once again clear commitment to the international community to deal with climate change and its proposition on global environmental governance, which reflects the determination and responsibility of a negative power

next year, the 15th Conference of the parties to the United Nations Convention on biological diversity will be held in Kunming, China, with the theme of "Ecological Civilization: building a community of earth life". This is completely consistent with the concept of "building a community with a shared future for mankind" put forward by China. Chinese people are now familiar with the phrase "green water and green mountains are golden mountains and silver mountains". Undoubtedly, China will become an important participant, contributor and leader in the construction of global ecological civilization
