Qinghai Province is part of the Tibetan Plateau which sits more than 3,000m above sea level. Hailed as the "roof of the world", and the "water tower of Asia", the Plateau is a natural habitat for rare animals.
The project is restoring more than 13,000 hectares of degraded land in the Qinghai province, supporting a drive to create and conserve nature reserves in the region. It is located to the east of Qinghai lake - the largest lake in China - which sits at the crossroads of several bird migration routes across Asia.
The project uses a resilient mix of native tree species including; Spruce, Juniper, Pine, Poplar, Birch, Elm.
- The resilient mix of native tree species will encourage and enhance biodiversity in the area.
- Afforestation projects can improve hydrological cycles, reduce drought and flood risk, promote soil nutrient replenishment and improve the local micro-climate.
- Thousands of permanent and temporary jobs will be created to plant and maintain the forests, enhancing the local community by providing technical skills and training.
