    Biodiversity Conservation and Use in China’s Dongting Lake - GCP/CPR/043/GFF 2022

    China’s second largest freshwater lake, Dongting Lake is located in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River. It is listed as one of the 200 most important ecological areas in the world by the World Wide Fund for Nature. It is also an important staging, wintering and feeding site for migratory birds, and provides a breeding ground and sanctuary for important aquatic species. Despite the significance of its highly diverse and productive biodiversity, the globally important ecosystem and the services it provides are increasingly at risk. The major threats on Dongting Lake wetland ecosystem (DWE) include water pollution, overfishing and unsustainable fishing practices, river traffic and sand mining activities, habitat fragmentation caused by reed farming, agricultural conversion and changes in the hydrological cycle. In order to seek effective ways to secure biodiversity conservation and sustainable use in the DWE , to achieve harmonious development between humankind and nature, and to promote the mainstreaming of biodiversity conservation, the current project was implemented, which is also in line with FAO's principle of “better production, better nutrition, a better environment , and a better life.
