China contributes to global poverty relief through agricultural science

Xinhua

Agriculture is fundamental to people's livelihood, hence the promotion and application of agricultural science is of great significance for global poverty reduction. According to statistics of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of China, the advances in agricultural science and technology have contributed to 58.3 percent of the agricultural production since 1949. The agriculture of the country has entered a technological and equipment-driven stage. Meanwhile, China's advanced agricultural technology is going abroad to promote the poverty alleviation of other developing countries.

In the early 1990s, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations identified hybrid rice as the preferred solution to food shortages in developing countries. China's hybrid rice technology has been tested and promoted in dozens of countries and regions around the world and has become a major project in assisting other developing countries.

"I've been planting Chinese hybrid rice since its introduction. We don't have to suffer hunger anymore. I hope that all farmers in Madagascar can grow this type of rice," George, a 55-year-old Malagasy rice farmer, proudly and happily said.

China has not only sent technicians to other countries and provided them with advanced technology, but also helped them to strengthen their scientific and technological capabilities through various training programmes.

In recent years, as the cooperation in global poverty reduction deepens, the international community, especially other developing countries, has come to recognize the concepts of green and sustainable development underlying Chinese experience and practice. China has set an example for other developing countries in fundamentally solving the poverty problem.

In August 2018, China-based Paradise Foundation International (PFI) awarded 50 African rangers who had excelled in wildlife protection.
