China is going to convert the massive desert into forest.

China is continuously challenging the world with their new ideas and innovations. Every time their ideas are skeptical but this doesn’t last long as they make them possible. 

Now, China is about to turn one of the largest deserts in Asia, which covers an area of 12.95 million square kilometers, into a forest! This green wall is being built across a large part of the desert. Beijing has come a long way towards that goal. According to estimates, the desert is the largest man-made forest in the world. But the question is - why is China turning the desert into a forest? The desert covers much of northern China. The adverse effects of the desert on China's climate were most pronounced in March and April. At that time, a large area from the north to the capital Beijing would be covered in desert completely. The movement of aircraft was also hampered. On the other hand, the size of the desert is also increasing. Every year, the Gobi Desert occupies at least 3,600 square kilometers of grassland. The upper part of the soil is being covered by the desert. The storm is affecting not only China's Gobi Desert, but also neighboring Japan, North Korea and South Korea. The damage to agriculture in all these countries is huge. To get rid of that problem, the Chinese government launched a project called 'Green Wall' in 1986. China caused a 'green revolution' in the Gobi Desert. In the meantime, China has managed to turn 5 to 15 percent of the desert into forest. The desert that came to devour everything has been able to resist a lot. By 2009, China had planted 500,000 square kilometers of desert. It is the largest artificial forest in the world.
