BEIJING -- China has rolled out guidelines on a more region-specific approach to environmental management.

The guidelines were jointly issued by the general offices of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council.

It is important to adopt a region-specific approach to environmental management, and to enforce red lines for the protection of ecosystems, the quality of the environment, and rational resource utilization, according to the guidelines.

By 2025, the system for region-specific environmental management should be essentially established, and the system will be full-fledged and functioning efficiently by 2035, the guidelines noted.

The guidelines include 18 detailed policies in six aspects, including facilitating high-quality development, ensuring high-level protection of the ecological environment, and strengthening supervision and assessment.
