A man-made oasis in China's seventh biggest desert, Kubuqi, on the southern bank of the Yellow River, has been the backdrop for several international environmental events this year.

Amina Mohamed, deputy executive director of the United Nations Environment Programme, said at the launch of the Chinese edition of Global Environment Outlook-5 (GEO-5) that the place was chosen to showcase the success of the Kubuqi Desert control mode and encourage its worldwide replication.

He was speaking on Sept 4 at a convention center built in the oasis.
