Ecological Security and Green Development


Sanjiangyuan National Park, is one of the first batch of national parks in China, and serves as the largest national park in China. As an important ecological security barrier and a alpine biological germplasm resource base, it has significant conservation value in China and even in the world. Lots of protocols have been taken aiming at ecological tacking protection issues including loss of biodiversity and wildlife habitats, degradation of alpine grassland and overgrazing in Sanjiangyuan National Park. It promotes the implementation of major ecological restoration projects, and has formed the Sanjiangyuan National Park Biodiversity Conservation and Ecological Protection Program with the basics of the theory of grassland multifunctional target management and the new technologies of biodiversity protection. It has formed a new paradigm of scientific research support for biodiversity conservation and improvement of livelihoods for herds in the park, providing practical solutions for the construction of China’s ecological civilization, Chinese wisdom for the construction of national parks around the world, and Chinese solutions for global biodiversity conservation.
