This is a great story that you probably haven’t heard about.
Where is Kubuqi?
Inner Mongolia’s Kubuqi Deserta (has) around 18,600 sq km of golden sand dunes that plunge south in an arc from China’s Yellow River.
Desertification has been a major problem. For three decades, efforts persisted to reverse this — and finally they are working. In turn, this is helping the people who live there to experience better living standards, even a hint of prosperity.
Here is the story. I love it!
