The Yangtze River Economic Belt, covering about 2.05 million sq km, contains 11 provinces and cities. Its population and economic aggregate totals account for more than 40 percent of those of the entire country.
The belt has rich ecological resources. However, it is facing problems such as ecological deterioration, imbalance in regional development and unsound regional cooperation mechanisms. Environmental security has become an important task in the new era.
The typical cases are intended to provide references for courts at various levels on environmental resource trials and to promote a unified judicial norm to contribute to building a beautiful China.
