GUIZHOU, March 5 -- With Karst areas representing 61.92% of the province’s total area, Guizhou is among the most typical karst regions in the world, and a province with the widest and most diversified stony desertification.


Since 2011, the province has been exploring ways to treat stony desertification, including enclosing hills for natural regeneration, afforestation and planting grass, returning farmlands to forests and ecological migration, which have made great achievements. Based on the monitoring data, the stony desertification area reduced about 553.7 thousand hectares in five years.
