Yunnan allocates 3.6 billion yuan of special funds every year to promote the protection and control of lakes in the nine plateaus
Xinhua News Agency, Kunming, 14 Nov (Reporter Yang Jing) the reporter learned from the Yunnan Provincial Rivermaster system Office that Yunnan Province innovates the investment mechanism and arranges 3.6 billion yuan of special funds each year to support the protection and management of lakes in the nine major plateaus. It also actively explores the working mechanism of introducing the third party to participate in the protection and management of rivers and lakes.
It is understood that the nine major plateau lakes in Yunnan Province include Fuxian Lake, Erhai Lake, Lugu Lake, Yangzonghai, Dianchi Lake, Chenghai, Qilu Lake, Yilong Lake and Xingyun Lake. In recent years, Yunnan has comprehensively strengthened the spatial control of river basins, co-ordinated ecological elements such as mountains, rivers, forests, lakes and grasses, regarded improving water quality as the primary task, accelerated the pace of industrial transformation, and guarded the clear water of a lake.
Liu Gang, director of the Yunnan Provincial Water Conservancy Department and director of the Provincial River system Office, said that Yunnan adheres to the systematic and scientific management of landscape, forest, lake, and grass, and makes every effort to promote the relocation of ecological migration in Fuxian Lake. 58000 mu of cultivated land is fallow and rotation is implemented in the runoff area. Erhai Lake fully completed the demolition of 1806 ecological relocation households, creating the historical precedent of "people retreat from the lake" in Erhai Lake Basin. Dianchi Lake vigorously promoted the demolition of 53 enterprises and institutions in the first-class protected area, and replenished a total of 3.3 billion cubic meters of water to Dianchi Lake through the Niulanjiang-Dianchi Lake water supply project, which played a decisive role in improving the water quality of Dianchi Lake.
