China makes headway in reversing desertification

This article is a very brief mention of the reforestation efforts now occurring in China. It states that China has reduced the desertification from roughly 10k km² in the 1990s to roughly about 2.5k km² average over the last ten years. This was done through a process of greening and it is stated that more efforts need to be made, due to global issues with desertification. The article goes on to say that China is projecting to reclaim over half of the countrys reclaimable deserts by 2020. Finally, it adds that businesses will be rewarded for these continued efforts of greening and those leading to deforestation will be punished.
