China News Service, June 23. The Ministry of Ecology and Environment held a regular press conference in June on the 23rd.

Zhang Zhifeng, deputy director of the Marine Ecological Environment Department of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, introduced at the meeting that in 2021, my country's marine ecological environment will generally be stable and improving, and the health of marine ecosystems will generally improve. Healthy state, the "unhealthy" state has been basically eliminated.

  Zhang Zhifeng pointed out that the "14th Five-Year Plan" period is an important five years for writing a new chapter in the construction of a beautiful China and realizing new progress in the construction of ecological civilization. Improve the critical period from quantitative change to qualitative change.

  Since last year, the Marine Department of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment has deepened the top-level design of the marine ecological environmental protection work during the 14th Five-Year Plan, and has issued a series of policy documents and planning schemes in conjunction with relevant departments, and gradually clarified the "mission book" of the marine ecological environmental protection work. , "Timeline" and "Roadmap".

At present, the key tasks of marine ecological environmental protection during the 14th Five-Year Plan have started smoothly:

  One is that a law revision enters the fast lane.

After full preparation and research and demonstration in the early stage, the revision of the Marine Environmental Protection Law has been incorporated into the 2022 National People's Congress legislative plan.

At this stage, the NPC Environmental and Resources Committee is taking the lead in organizing the drafting of the revised draft law, and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment and other relevant departments are also actively cooperating with the NPC Environmental and Resources Committee to do relevant work.

  Second, a main line of work is connected up and down.

In January this year, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, together with multiple departments, jointly issued the "14th Five-Year Plan for Marine Ecological Environmental Protection". "Strategies" to accurately deploy key mission measures for each bay.

The 11 coastal provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities) have also issued the provincial "14th Five-Year Plan" in different forms, promoting the construction of beautiful bays with "clean water, clean beaches, flock of fish and gulls, and harmonious sea of ​​people" according to local conditions. , The work pattern of connecting up and down the province, city and bay, and hierarchical governance is gradually formed.

  The third is a stable start of an iconic campaign.

The Ministry of Ecology and Environment, together with relevant departments and coastal areas, resolutely implements the decisions and deployments of the Party Central Committee and the State Council on in-depth pollution prevention and control. During the 14th Five-Year Plan, it will continue to maintain its strength, extend its depth and broaden its breadth, and actively plan and work together to promote the Bohai Sea and the Yangtze River Estuary. -The tough battles in the three major sea areas including Hangzhou Bay and the adjacent waters of the Pearl River Estuary.

At present, the "Action Plan for Tough Battles" has been issued and implemented by multiple departments, and 8 relevant coastal provinces (cities) and "2+24" coastal cities have all taken action; the Ministry of Ecology and Environment has also organized nearly 100 experts to set up stationed technical assistance work Teams to send policies, technologies, and services to the front lines of coastal cities and prefectures.

  Fourth, an important document was implemented in depth.

The Ministry of Ecology and Environment implemented the "Implementation Opinions on Strengthening the Supervision and Management of Sewage Outlets Entering Rivers and Seas" issued by the State Council, established a special technical assistance group, refined work measures and work plans, organized the drafting of trial measures for the supervision and management of sewage outfalls into the sea, and coordinated Promote the formulation of relevant technical standards, guide and urge coastal areas to steadily push forward the investigation and remediation of sewage outfalls into the sea.

  Fifth, the supervision and protection of the two areas have been effectively strengthened.

Since the beginning of this year, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, together with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, has jointly issued and implemented the "Opinions on Strengthening the Supervision of Marine Aquaculture Ecological Environment", and jointly issued and implemented the "National Marine Dumping Area Plan (2021-2025)" with the Ministry of Natural Resources. Marine ecological environment supervision in related fields, and actively serve the "six stability" and "six guarantees" of coastal areas, and help the green and high-quality development of the marine aquaculture industry.

  Zhang Zhifeng said that through the joint efforts of all parties, in 2021, the overall situation of my country's marine ecological environment will be stable and improving: First, the overall seawater quality will continue to improve. An increase of 0.9 percentage points year-on-year; the proportion of coastal waters with excellent water quality (class I and II) was 81.3%, an increase of 3.9 percentage points year-on-year; second, the overall health of marine ecosystems improved, and the typical marine ecosystems monitored were all in healthy or substandard conditions. The health status has basically eliminated the "unhealthy" status. Third, the environmental quality of the main sea areas is generally good. While protecting the marine ecological environment, it also provides strong support and guarantee for the development of the marine economy.

  Zhang Zhifeng said that although the marine ecological protection work has made significant progress, the overall governance effect is not stable, and the ecological environment problems in some sea areas are still relatively prominent.

In the next step, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment will work with relevant departments and coastal areas to adhere to the overall planning and comprehensive management of land and sea, adhere to seeking progress while maintaining stability, overcome difficulties, and concentrate on implementing the decisions and arrangements of the Party Central Committee and the State Council and the "14th Five-Year Plan". various tasks.
