The Lessons of the Loess Plateau

EcopointAsia TV

Ecopoint has teamed up with the Environmental Education Media Project (EEMP), and John D. Liu, Founder & Director of EEMP, is proud to bring you this film. In 2005, the Chinese government, in cooperation with the World Bank, completed the world's largest watershed restoration on the upper banks of the Yellow River. Woefully under-publicized, the $500 million enterprise transformed an area of 35,000 square kilometers on the Loess Plateau — roughly the area of Belgium — from dusty wasteland to a verdant agricultural center.
