The Lessons of the Loess Plateau shows how an ancient civilization failed because they degraded their ecosystem functions. This parallels many if not all of the original cradles of civilization. But recently the Chinese people are showing that it is possible to rehabilitate large-scale damaged ecosystems. It’s also known as the Green wall of China
Hope in a Changing Climate
Published on Apr 10, 2013
Documentary by John Liu – John D Liu is an international expert on large-scale restoration projects on degraded lands. First exposed to large-scale degraded ecosystems in the Loess Plateau in the upper and middle reaches of the Yellow River in 1995, I became fascinated by how human history has altered physical landscapes. The loss of biodiversity, hydrological regulation, weather regulation, climate regulation, soil fertility and agricultural productivity had led to massive poverty and continuous ecological crisis. “Over the years I have witnessed the steps the Chinese people have taken to restore this region’s ecology and have tried to understand the implications of what I have seen and documented”

Trees for Water – China. Exploring Forest Landscape Restoration for Beijing
Published on Mar 10, 2015
Beijing is the world’s pre-eminent megacity: a regional economic hub, capital of China, home to 21 million people. It also experiences some of the world’s worst water stress – more, in fact, than most Middle Eastern capitals.

Restoring China’s Forests 重建中國的樹林
Published on Dec 9, 2013
The world’s forests provide us with so much of what we need to survive and thrive in our daily lives: oxygen, water, flood protection, food, fuel and paper, and even a better climate. Forests are also home to 80% of the world’s terrestrial plants and animals. But nearly half of the world’s original forest cover is gone. The Nature Conservancy, a leading global conservation organization with more than one million supporters, is working to protect and restore forests around the world: for example, we’ve planted more than 23 million trees in China, Brazil, and other countries—just like taking 2,000 cars off the road, every day. This video interviews The Nature Conservancy’s conservation programs director in China, Ma Jian, and shows how The Nature Conservancy is working in China to restore thousands of hectares of forests. Planting trees is one of the easiest way to clean our air: just one tree can supply four people with their daily oxygen needs—this is especially important in cities like Hong Kong, where 3,000 die prematurely every year due to air pollution.
