In a video presented by Xinhua News Agency on Sept. 16 (Watch the video below), many officials and experts have spoken highly of China's ecological red line initiative.


China's central authorities in 2017 issued guidelines for an ecological red line strategy, enforcing strict protection over certain zones.



At a news conference in July, Cui Shuhong, head of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment's nature and eco-conservation department, said China has essentially completed the drawing of ecological red lines across the country.


The preliminary red lines encircle at least a quarter of the country's land, he noted, adding they have covered all of the key areas for biodiversity conservation.
