China lays out plan to further boost its bio diversity protection

China has further enhanced its top-level design for biodiversity conservation with a 2023-30 national strategy and an action plan that vows to restore at least 30 percent of the nation’s degraded ecosystems by the end of this decade. The document, which was made public on Thursday last week, noted the grim situation for biodiversity conservation in China, saying: “The country’s ecosystems, species and genetic diversity are all suffering from varying degrees of degradation and loss.” With degradation to one degree or another, the country’s grassland ecosystems are generally fragile, it noted. Functional degradation and loss have also occurred in the ecosystems of some rivers, wetlands and lakes. Quoting the Redlist of China’s Biodiversity, the latest version of which was made public last year, the action plan said 4,088 of the higher plant species, or roughly 10 percent of the total assessed, were under threat. It said 1,050 vertebrate species in the country — excluding fish — were also under threat, representing some 22 percent of the total assessed. “There remain significant conflicts between biodiversity conservation and socioeconomic development in different regions,” it said. Overexploitation, intensified land use changes that have encroached upon natural spaces and the disorderly development of biological resources have further exacerbated the biodiversity conservation situation, it said. Shen Manhong, dean of Zhejiang A&F University’s Institute of Ecological Civilization, said the document has made China’s biodiversity conservation even more systematic. https://www.capitalfm.co.ke/news/2024/01/biodiversity-protection-boosted-by-latest-plan-china-daily/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=biodiversity-protection-boosted-by-latest-plan-china-daily

        China's commitment to enhancing biodiversity protection through its 2023-30 national strategy and action plan is a crucial step in the global fight against climate change. The acknowledgment of the grim situation facing biodiversity in the country and the pledge to restore at least 30 percent of degraded ecosystems by the end of the decade reflects a commendable level of environmental consciousness. The recognition that ecosystems, species, and genetic diversity in China are suffering from varying degrees of degradation and loss is a sobering acknowledgment. The focus on the fragility of grassland ecosystems and the functional degradation in rivers, wetlands, and lakes underscores the urgent need for comprehensive conservation efforts.

              China's leadership in addressing its own biodiversity challenges can inspire other countries to take similar action, contributing to global biodiversity conservation efforts.
