BEIJING, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- China's Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) has announced a year-long campaign to strengthen public interest litigation in protecting the Yellow River.

The campaign, running from February 2024 to January 2025, focuses on key areas including water resources conservation, soil erosion control, industrial pollution, and cultural heritage protection, the SPP said in a statement.

The SPP demands that procuratorates at all levels in the regions along the Yellow River, in collaboration with administrative organs, to make targeted efforts in facilitating public interest litigation concerning the Yellow River protection based on local features, the statement read.

It added that cases with prominent public interest damages will be handled under the SPP's supervision and guidance. Enditem
