A meeting was convened to launch an environmental promotional campaign in Tibet.
The campaign is designed to protect the blue skies, water and mountains in the region. It expects to enhance supervision by the law, public opinion and the masses, raise the environmental awareness of the people and promote the ecological construction and environmental protection in Tibet.
There will be two groups of environmental inspectors that will begin to work on August 30. They will check the implementation of the nation’s laws concerning environment protection, forestry, water and soil conservation and rules governing environmental management in construction projects and return of farmland to forested land whenever it is necessary in the localities in the region.
