“We face a very grim ecological environment and suffer from serious soil erosion with an infected area of 1.794 million square kilometres, accounting for 18.7 per cent of the country’s land area. Desertification expands at an annual speed of 2100 square kilometres. The area of desert, Gobi and desertified land in north China has exceeded 1.49 million square kilometres, accounting for 15.5% of the total land area. Ecological governance capacity lags far behind the rate of land degradation and our ecological deficit is growing gradually. Therefore, to protect and improve our ecological environment has become imminent.
Mother River Protection is a large environmental project initiated in January 1999 by All China Youth Federation (ACYF), China Youth Development Foundation (CYDF), Environmental and Resources Protection Committee of NPC, National Afforestation Commission, Population, Resources and Environment Committee of CPPCC, Ministry of Water Resources, State Forestry Administration, State Environmental Protection Administration (now The Ministry of Environmental Protection) and the Ministry of Agriculture. CYDF is in charge of managing donations and funded programs.
The purpose of this project is to promote the awareness of green civilization, raise money from the public to protect the ecological environment of Yellow River, Yangtze River and other rivers as well as sponsor the green projects in areas with harsh ecological conditions, thus promoting ecological protection and restoration in our country.”
