Estos acuerdos contemplan la inversión de 1.750 millones de yuanes (unos 250 millones de dólares) para la cooperación en terrenos de procesado de madera, parques industriales y plantaciones, y promover el ecoturismo forestal.

China ha reducido la desertificación e incrementado la cobertura forestal desde 1978, gracias al Programa de Forestación Tres-Norte (TNAP, siglas en inglés), de acuerdo con un informe dado a conocer hoy lunes.

Implementado en el noreste, el norte y el noroeste del país, el TNAP es un programa nacional para luchar contra la erosión de los suelos y el daño causado por el viento y la arena, a través de la siembra de bosques de ciertas especies que fortalecen la tierra sobre la que crecen.

El 70% del territorio sueco está cubierto por bosques, pero lo más llamativo es que en menos de un siglo nórdico ha duplicado su masa forestal. Lo que más sorprende es que Suecia proporciona el 10% de la madera del comercio mundial. Una madera que se utiliza para fabricar papel, para la construcción de muebles o a modo de leña para generar calor.

Por tanto, la pregunta es ¿cómo es posible que Suecia duplique su masa forestal al mismo tiempo que genera el 10% de la madera consumida anualmente en todo el mundo?
