VI.TOWARDS THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY: FUTURE PERSPECTIVE AND POLICY OF DEVELOPMENT IN SHENYANG
B. Policy for future development
5. Expanding green areas
In Shenyang city, the percentage of green cover is low. Therefore, as part of the urbanization process, afforestation needs to be increased. For example, the city should afforest the central area, build a green ecological belt around city, ensure that construction projects are carefully and rationally planned, and determine an appropriate green area ratio. Meanwhile, in order to check wind erosion and control sand encroachment, the city should accelerate the afforestation of the banks of the Hunhe River and areas in the west and north, and complete the Shenyang section of the "Three Norths" shelter forest.
