Participants emphasized it was “urgent” for countries along the Belt and Road Initiative to cooperate over ecological restoration and confirmed the design of the Kubuqi Model contains a wealth of desertification control technologies and experiences worth learning from by countries which face similar challenges.

Noted was the practice of raising sheep under photovoltaic panels, offered up as a solution by local businesses, and drones’ tree planting technologies.

About the Kubuqi Model: A Chinese Solution to Ecological Restoration

The Kubuqi Model has become a name card for China's desertification control efforts. The core pillars of the Kubuqi Model are government policy support, industrial investment, market-oriented participation of farmers and herdsmen, and sustainable ecological improvement. The Model fosters peaceful development of the desertification regions by increasing local people's income in the greening efforts via the combination of ecology and industry, enterprise development and ecological management.
