This passage is from Xi Jinpings report at the nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China in October 18, 2017.
Soil and water conservation is the foundation of land consolidation and river management, and a basic national policy that China must adhere to for a long time. Since the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, China has accelerated the progress of comprehensive control of soil and water loss. With the ecological civilization thought of respecting nature, conforming to nature and protecting nature, we have formed a new concept of comprehensive management of mountains, water, forest, farmland, lake, grass and sand, and built up ecological security barriers.
To promote the comprehensive management of mountains, rivers, forests, lakes, grass and sand, we need to firmly establish the value that protecting and improving the natural ecological environment is the liberation and development of productive forces, abandon the practice of seeking temporary economic growth at the expense of natural ecological benefits, take the ecological function as the guidance, coordinate the ecological protection and high-quality development of river basins, and strive to promote the supervision system of soil and water loss We should strengthen the implementation of wetland protection and restoration system, take various measures to strengthen the prevention and management of geological disasters, so as to make the good ecological environment become the growth point of peoples life, the support point of sustainable and healthy economic and social development, and the power point to show the good image of China, and make the sky bluer, the mountains greener, the water clearer and the environment more beautiful in China.
