New TNC Book! Protecting Land in China


Protecting China’s Biodiversity – A Guide to Land Use, Land Tenure, and Land Protection Tools

View the cover of our new book!

The Conservancy’s China Program has authored a new book, Protecting China’s Biodiversity – A Guide to Land Use, Land Tenure, and Land Protection Tools. This book is the first of its kind, providing a comprehensive yet digestible overview of land use, land tenure and land protection opportunities in China. Funded by the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, the book is a reference guide for anyone with an interest in Chinese land issues and covers the following topics: 

  • The “lay of the land” – an orientation to Chinese biodiversity values and land use practices.
  • Land tenure system – a description of China’s land tenure system.
  • Land protection in practice – a description and analysis of land conservation tools and case studies. 

We hope our research sparks more land protection action in China and beyond. Download the book now.
