Grassland Protection

From 2011 to 2016, a total of 30 billion yuan (4.47 billion U.S. dollars) had been invested to protect the ecosystem of grassland in the region.

Various measures, such as reforestation and restricting grazing areas, are taken to stop the land degradation.

In Xilingol, where the area of grassland accounts for a quarter of the total in the region, the government has subsidized herders who raise livestock in sustainable fashion in an effort to prevent overgrazing.

To date, the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region has 182 nature reserves and 43 national forest parks.
