China's first regulations to promote ecological protection and high-quality development of the Yellow River basin came into effect on Tuesday, marking a major step in conserving and restoring the ecological environment of the country's second-longest river.
The regulations have provisions on disaster prevention and response as well as legal liability for preserving the basin area.
Northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region serves as a demonstration zone in this endeavor.
