Before his retirement, Wang irrigated farmland for de

nd for decades and witnessed local farmers’ continuous battles against sandstorms.

“It didn’t just feel like a black storm, it was as if the whole desert was approachi

ng,” recalls Liu Conghui, a writer who was born, and still lives, near the farm Wang once worked.

As the menacing sandstorms made the area increasingly inhospitable, Liu’s whole community planned to up sticks.

To restore the local ecosystem, the Chinese government launched

a 10.7 billion yuan ($1.6 billion) project in 2001. A set of measures were adopted such as sav

ing water, converting farmland into grassland, providing treatment for dry riverways and building dams. In addition to t

hose measures, industrial and agricultural use of water in cities and counties along the river was limited.

Over the past two decades, Xinjiang has infused 7.7 billion cubic meters of water into

the dry trunk stream of the lower reaches of the Tarim River in 19 rounds of water diversion.

Excessive irrigation in the past used up too much water, which caused the lower 400 km of t

he Tarim River to run dry in the early 1970s and pushed surrounding trees to the verge of disappearance.

Born in the village of Yengisu by the dried-up river, Ahmat never saw the water as a child. Sa

Xinjiang to launch up to 100 trains for tourists

As tours to Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region have become increasingly popular among tourists from home and abroad, local

authorities have announced a plan recently to launch as many as 100 special trains for tourists from May to October.

ngfen, deputy general manager of Xinjiang Railway Tourism Development Group.

The court pointed out that Huang had planned to carry out the crime for a long time, visiting

event wild animals from being touched by tourists. In such conditions, education on wildlife protection before the tour will be needed,” he said.
