“China will work with an independent US institute to learn from the country’s successful management of national parks amid efforts to improve the environment.
The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and the US Paulson Institute on Monday inked an agreement to cooperate on a national park system for China over the next three years.
Nine regions have been chosen to trial national park systems in a pilot program that will run until the end of 2017. The regions are Beijing, Jilin, Heilongjiang, Zhejiang, Fujian, Hubei, Hunan, Yunnan and Qinghai, according to a guideline on reform issued by the State Council in May.”
