In mid-2023, we will plan and write a new chapter in Chinese-style modernization

Green water and green mountains reflect the original intention, the general secretary cares about "green China"

Peng Xiaoling

The green mountains are endless, and the green water is long.

2023 is the first year to fully implement the spirit of the <>th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. The report of the <>th National Congress of the Communist Party of China pointed out that Chinese-style modernization is the modernization of harmonious coexistence between man and nature.

Since the beginning of this year, General Secretary Xi Jinping has visited local areas, looking at mountains, water, trees... Walking non-stop, thinking deeply, laying out the layout for the construction of "green China".

"Planting" this green painting makes a green picture

Trees, leaving the mark of time, witness the changes of history.

On April 4 this year, when Xi Jinping participated in the capital's voluntary tree-planting activity in Dongba Central Park, Chaoyang District, Beijing, he said in a serious way that "forests are reservoirs of water, money, grain, and carbon." "Forests are the largest carbon reservoirs and absorbers on land, and afforestation not only beautifies the environment, but also undertakes an increasingly important mission. Xi Jinping once again mentioned the "carbon pool", expressing the urgency of promoting green development.

On April 4, Xi Jinping inspected and investigated in Guangdong Province. He came to Zhanjiang City and inspected the Jinniudao mangrove area in Huguang Town, Mazhang District, to learn about the local strengthening of mangrove protection. He stressed that this mangrove forest is a "national treasure" and should be guarded as well as an eye.

The Zhanjiang mangrove forest in Guangdong has been called a successful example of wetland restoration in the world by international wetland experts; The mangrove forest at the mouth of the Zhangjiang River in Fujian is inhabited by more than 150 species of birds, more than 240 species of aquatic animals and nearly 400 species of aquatic organisms; The Futian Mangrove Wetland in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province has been listed in the list of "Wetlands of International Importance" by the Convention on Wetlands... Today, mangroves have become a bright business card of beautiful China.

An ancient Shu road, half of the history of China.

The continuous ancient cypresses on the thousand-year-old road have been baptized by wind and rain and have become precious specimens of the symbiosis of nature and humanities.

On July 7, Xi Jinping came to Jiange County, Guangyuan City, Sichuan Province, to listen to the development history of the ancient Shu Road and the overall situation of the Cuiyun Corridor, walk along the ancient road to inspect the growth of the thousand-year-old cypress, and inquire in detail about the historical cypress planting and protection of cypress. "This enlightens us that to grasp the construction of ecological civilization, we must build a good institutional framework and implement the system, and at the same time fully mobilize the enthusiasm, initiative and creativity of the broad masses of the people to consolidate and develop the achievements of ecological civilization construction in the new era." Xi Jinping said.

From south to north, looking at it all the way, Xi Jinping's earnest instructions have been translated into firm actions to make "the sky bluer, the mountains greener, the water clearer, and the environment more beautiful".

Under the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Ecological Civilization, the concept of green development has become increasingly deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and the pace of afforestation by hundreds of millions of people has been unswerving, making the motherland more and more green, playing a "green symphony".

Use water to set green to moisturize the great rivers and mountains

The Yangtze River is mighty, the Yellow River is rushing, and a history of Chinese civilization has not stopped flowing.

Shanxi Yuncheng Salt Lake has a mining history of more than 4600,<> years, with profound cultural heritage and important historical value. In recent years, the local area has adhered to the priority of protection and green development, implemented the "return of salt to the lake", stopped all industrial production within the protected area of the salt lake, and promoted industrial transformation and upgrading according to local conditions.

On May 5, Xi Jinping came here, combined with exhibition panels, exhibits and other relevant briefings, and inspected the scenery of the salt lake on the spot.

How to treat the Mother River? Great development or great protection? "Ze by descendants" or "exhausted and fished"? Xi Jinping stressed that the ecological protection and high-quality development of the Yellow River Basin is a major strategic decision made by the Party Central Committee from the height of the sustainable development of the Chinese nation and Chinese civilization, and all provinces and regions in the Yellow River Basin must adhere to the protection of the ecology of the Yellow River Basin as the benchmark for planning development and promoting high-quality development, and things that are not conducive to the ecological protection of the Yellow River Basin must not be done.

The river rushes, and the river is covered by both sides. In order to protect the original ecosystem of the salt lake, Yuncheng has not only formulated and issued policies and regulations such as the "Salt Lake Ecological Protection and Restoration Plan (2021-2035)" and "Yuncheng Salt Lake Protection Regulations", but also changed today's salt lake from an "industrial and mining development zone" to an "ecological reserve" through the "Clean Lake Action".

Located in the territory of the former banner of Urat in Bayannur City, Inner Mongolia, Wuliang Suhai is like a "pearl outside the country", embedded in the top of the "several bends" of the Yellow River. Xi Jinping has always attached great importance to the governance of the Wuliangsuhai Basin.

"Properly managing the Wuliangsu Sea basin is of great significance to ensuring the ecological security of northern China." On June 6, Xi Jinping stressed during his inspection that the direction of Wuliang Suhai's governance and protection is clear, and it is necessary to carefully govern and carefully care for it, and make contributions consistently and for a long time to protect this "pearl outside the country" and leave a new beautiful home with green mountains, beautiful water and air for future generations.

In recent years, a number of measures have been taken to implement basin-wide and systematic comprehensive management of the river basin, promoting the continuous improvement of the ecological environment of Wuliangsuhai, the overall water quality is stable at Category V., the local area is better than Category V., the water surface area is stable at 293 square kilometers, and biodiversity continues to recover.

The change is not only one city and one region. Zhejiang has comprehensively promoted the work of "five water co-governance" and strived to realize the transformation of the water ecological environment from "clean" to "beautiful"; Shandong and Henan provinces took the lead in implementing horizontal ecological compensation for the inter-provincial Yellow River Basin in the country; Sichuan, the ecological barrier in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River and the Yellow River and the main water conservation area, has implemented a series of special actions to solve a number of outstanding water ecological and environmental problems and ensure that the clean water of the river flows eastward.

With the coordinated promotion of carbon reduction, pollution reduction, green expansion and growth, in the first half of this year, among the 3641,87 national surface water assessment sections, the proportion of excellent water quality (Class I to III.) sections was 8.2%, an increase of 1.1 percentage points year-on-year; the proportion of inferior V. sections was 0.0%, down 1.<> percentage points year-on-year, and the environmental quality of surface water nationwide continued to improve.

Water, moisturizing the earth, ze all things. The great rivers bear witness to Xi Jinping's feelings for the sustainable development of the Chinese nation.

Anti-sand and green fixation, write green miracles

The "Three Norths" project stretches from Xinjiang in the west to Heilongjiang in the east, and is a green Great Wall that stretches for thousands of miles.

From June 6 to 5, Xi Jinping visited Bayannur City, Inner Mongolia, and presided over a symposium on strengthening comprehensive desertification control and promoting the construction of key ecological projects such as the "Three Norths".

In view of the planting of forest and grass vegetation in the "three north" areas, Xi Jinping pointed out that it is necessary to scientifically select the vegetation restoration mode, rationally allocate the type and density of forest and grass vegetation, adhere to the combination of arbor shrub and grass, and create windproof and sand fixation forest networks, forest belts and windbreak and sand fixation desert lock edge forest and grass belts.

Along the way, as far as the eye can see, yellow and green are intertwined. The green seedlings that grow after the improvement of the saline-alkali land, the tough and tall trees rooted in the sand, and the web woven by the yellow irrigation canal all tell the story of the land over time.

"Major ecological projects such as the construction of the 'Three North' shelterforest system can only be accomplished under the leadership of the Communist Party of China." Xi Jinping sighed.

Issued the "Opinions on the Implementation of the "Three Lines and One Single" Ecological Environment Zoning Control and Control", formulated the "Implementation Plan for Building Important Ecological Safety Barriers in Northern China", and promulgated the Regulations of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region on the Promotion of Building Important Ecological Safety Barriers in Northern China... Over the years, China has strictly abided by the ecological red line, continuously strengthened the construction of important ecological safety barriers in northern China, and promoted the realization of a major transformation from "sand into people retreating" to "green entering sand retreating".

From Bashan Shushui to Jiangnan Water Town, from the high slopes of the loess to the southeast coast, since the beginning of this year, wherever Xi Jinping has went, he has talked about the concept of ecological civilization construction and thought of the "great of the country".

"To coordinate the management of landscapes, forests, fields, lakes, grass and sand systems, the word 'sand' should be added here." Previously, at the 2021 National Two Sessions, Xi Jinping said so.

From the initial "landscape forest lake is a community of life" to "to coordinate the management of landscape forest lake grass and sand system", "grass" and "sand" have increased word for word, reflecting not only the system concept and overall overall thinking, but also the gradual development after field research.

Facing the future, Xi Jinping once again issued a call - "we must adhere to the concept of system, solidly promote the integrated protection of landscapes, waters, forests, fields, lakes, grass and sand, and systematic governance", "highlight the key points of governance, and make every effort to fight the three landmark battles", "adhere to scientific sand control, comprehensively improve the quality and stability of desert ecosystems", and "carry out extensive international exchanges and cooperation".

The yellow sand retreats, and the green spreads. By the end of 2022, China has completed a total of 3 million mu of sand prevention and control tasks, with a total area of 05.2707 million mu of closure and protection, established 65 national comprehensive demonstration areas for sand prevention and control, and 41 national desert parks, and built a green ecological barrier with scientific configuration of shrubs and grasses on the wind and sand line in northern China.

Guided by "green" in development concepts and "green" in regional coordination, today's China, under the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Ecological Civilization, "green" is becoming a bright background for high-quality development.
