Tibet Works to Guard Its Jewels of Nature

The Tibet autonomous region has been making great efforts to protect its natural environment and has vowed to maintain the region as one of Earth’s purest landscapes.

At the annual sessions of the region’s people’s congress and political advisory body in January, authorities called for more pollution control through greater input and efforts this year.

“Tibet remains one of the best ecological environments in the world,” said Qi Zhala, chairman of the regional government, during the congress earlier this year. “In 2019, our goal is to achieve the targets for energy consumption, carbon intensity and pollution reduction set by the State, with major cities seeing fairly good air quality on more than 95 percent of days.”
