Inner Mongolia makes achievements on anti-desertification


Over the past 40 years, China planted approximately 7.88 million hectares of windbreak trees and managed 36,000 square kilometers of desertified land. 

Inner Mongolia autonomous region, lying along China's northern border, has played an essential role in anti-desertification efforts and achieved significant results. 

Forest coverage in Inner Mongolia reached 22.1 percent in 2019, and the vegetation coverage of grasslands rose to 44 percent, four percentage points higher than in 2012.
