Inner Mongolia pushes ahead with desertification control and renewable energy plans


 , Updated 16:37, 24-Mar-2024

North China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region has intensified its efforts to turn the vast desert into oasis by vigorously promoting the integration project of desertification control and renewable energy, involving large-scale afforestation, ecological and photovoltaic projects.

Among the ongoing projects are the comprehensive management project for the desert in western Inner Mongolia's Alshaa League (phase II), the construction of the "Photovoltaic Great Wall" in the Kubuqi Desert in Ordos City, and a project to eliminate the Hunshandake Desert in Xilingol League.

New energy utilization projects are also under construction in Chifeng City.

The Three-North Shelterbelt Forest Program is a large-scale afforestation and ecological project involving the northwest, north and northeast regions of China, spanning from Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in the west to Heilongjiang Province in the east.

According to the plan, the program's construction scope covers 13 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities, with a total construction area of 4.07 million square kilometers.

This year, Inner Mongolia plans to plant over 200,000 hectares of trees, along with over 866,667 hectares of grass, and treat over 1 million hectares of desertified and sandy land.

It will also add 13.2 million kilowatts of new energy installations and complete the comprehensive management of about 153,333 hectares of desertified land.
