On October 30, 2022, the Yellow River Protection Law of China was approved at a meeting of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, which means the ecological protection and high-quality development of the Yellow River basin has become a law to abide by.
The Yellow River is the "mother river" of the Chinese nation, but it has brought many flood disasters in history. For a long time, water shortage, soil erosion, fragile ecological environment and other problems in the Yellow River basin have been extremely prominent. Ecological problems caused by excessive development further endangered people's work and life.
To promote ecological protection and high-quality development, the Yellow River basin has carried out a series of comprehensive renovation work. From the prohibition of grazing and enclosure in the headwaters of the Three Rivers in the upper reaches, to the return of farmland to forests and grasslands on the Loess Plateau in the middle reaches, and then to the strengthening of reservoir layout and intensive use of water resources in the whole basin, the Yellow River's ability to conserve water and soil is constantly improving.
Today, the ecological environment of the Yellow River basin is being comprehensively improved. The types of birds in the Yellow River Delta Reserve has increased from 187 to 371. Many regions have developed distinctive industries and clean low-carbon energy according to local conditions. The Yellow River has truly become a "river of happiness" for the people.
The report to the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China pointed out that Chinese modernization is the modernization of harmony between humanity and nature. In the future, China will continue to advance the ecological conservation of the Yellow River basin and promote harmonious coexistence between man and nature.
