To build a beautiful Tibet, Tibet spares no pains to deal with the problem between environmental protection and economic development.

Kazi Town in Lhunzhub County, Lhasa City, Tibet Autonomous Region is located on the upper stream of Lhasa River. In recent years, more and more black-necked cranes begin to fly to here to live through the winter. This year, the number increases to over 10000, accounting for 80% of the global total.

There are 125 kinds of national key protected wild animals in Tibet, accounting for more than 30% of the total number in China. Ecological protection makes a contribution to this phenomenon.

In recent years,the harshest-ever environmental protection rules have been implemented in Tibet. The policy of "one ballot veto" is executed in strict rotation. From 2003 to now, no projects with high consumption of water and energy, and heavy pollution are approved in Tibet.

At present, exploitation-prohibited and restricted development areas in Tibet has exceeded 800000 square meters, accounting for 70% of the whole land area in Tibet. Data lately released by Chinese Academy of Sciences shows that the ecosystem structure of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is stable on the whole. Water, air, sound, soil, radiation and eco-environmental quality are all in good condition.
