HA GIANG (VNS) — A project to plan and restore biodiversity by 2020 and create a vision for northern Ha Giang Province by 2030 has attracted the attention of experts and scientific organisations.
Cao Hong Ky, deputy president of the Scientific and Technical Leagues of Ha Giang Province, said the project is a strategic plan related to many fields of environment, nature, and society and is aimed at creating a greener environment.
The project aims to protect and sustainably develop nature and ecology, restore precious and endangered natural gene sources, and sustainably use biodiversity.
The project will encourage local communities to take part in activities for environmental protection and biodiversity development.
Under the project, Ha Giang Province will protect and sustainably develop natural forests and plant new forests to increase the region's green cover to 57 per cent this year and 60 per cent by 2020.
The province will build biodiversity restoration centres and flora gardens to protect precious gene sources.
By 2030, Ha Giang's focus will be to prevent decline in biodiversity, restore important ecology, and plant and breed special trees and animals that will add to the welfare of ethnic minorities as well as contribute toward poverty alleviation. — VNS
