Pub Date:18-07-03 09:57 Source:www.cnanhui.org

About 21,233.32 square kilometers of land in Anhui province, or 15.15 percent of the total, have been designated as “ecological red line zones” and put under mandatory protection, the local environmental protection watchdog said on Monday.

The zones were delimited as required by a document issued by the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and the State Council in 2017. It is aimed at protecting areas with important ecological functions and a fragile environment from commercial and industrial development.

These areas will play an important role in water resource conservation, water and soil conservation and biodiversity protection.

As industrial and urbanized development are prohibited, 35.24 percent of the province’s forest, 44.26 percent of its grassland and 54.80 percent of its wetland are under adequate protection, the Department of Environmental Protection of Anhui Province said.

“Ecological red line zones” in Huangshan make up 37.55 percent of the city’s total land, followed by Chizhou at 33.49 percent, Lu’an at 28.12 percent and Anqing at 22.45 percent.
