BEIJING, November 30 -- President Xi Jinping said that after 40 years’ endeavor, the Three-North Shelterbelt Forest Program has created great economic, social and environmental benefits, which is a best practice on ecological governance globally. Since northern China is still ecologically vulnerable, Mr. Xi called for long-term inputs and innovative approaches to consolidate and develop the green ecological barrier.

The program was launched in 1978, which is to curb desertification and soil erosion and expected to be completed by 2050.
