Climate targets: LULUCF

    • Additional 4.5 billion cubic meter forest stock volume compared to 2005 level
      LULUCF
    • Increase the forested area by 40 million hectares and the forest stock volume by 1.3 billion cubic meters compared to the 2005 levels.
      LULUCF
    • By 2020, the forest coverage rate will reach 23% and the forest reserves will exceed 15 billion cubic meters by 2020
      LULUCF | Trajectory target | Target year: 2020 | Base year: 2013
    • By 2020, the rate of ��three-step� grasslands will reach 55.6% by 2020
      LULUCF | Trajectory target | Target year: 2020 | Base year: 2013
    • Effective protection rate of natural wetlands will reach more than 60%, and the area of desertified land will be over 50% of the controllable area. More than 95% of the state's key protected wild animals and over 90% of the minimum wild plant species will be effectively protected against desertification by 2020.
