Northwest China's Qinghai Province will continue to strengthen the construction of the Sanjiangyuan eco-protection area and plans to invest an additional 1 billion yuan to promote the construction of an ecological compensation mechanism, according to the conference on the construction of the Sanjiangyuan area and Qinghai Lake ecological engineering.

Qinghai Province has invested a total of 1.2 billion yuan in the Sanjiangyuan eco-protection and construction and achieved good results in 2010. Qinghai Province explored the establishment of the Sanjiangyuan ecological compensation mechanism with self-financing and formulated relevant policies and approaches, which were put into practice on a trial basis in parts of the Sanjiangyuan area at the end of October 2010.

Qinghai Province will further implement the Sanjiangyuan ecological compensation mechanism and waste no time to formulate and introduce related supporting policies in 2011. It will also combine the Sanjiangyuan ecological compensation mechanism, the state grassland ecological protection subsidy reward mechanism and the pilot forest and wetland ecological benefit compensation to promote ecological protection, the improvement of people's livelihoods and a win-win regional development.
