Over the years, especially since the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012, the Chinese government have given top priority to desertification control and prevention. As a result, China has made impressive achievements in desertification control, reducing decertified areas by 12,000 km2 . Thanks to its relentless dedication to desert control in Kubuqi, ELION has emerged as one of the stellar examples in China’s desertification control efforts, offering Chinese knowhow and expertise to the world.
