Assessment of Natural Capital and Ecosystem Services: Two Cases of Ecosystem Restoration in the People’s Republic of China

The People’s Republic of China, combating severe land degradation, has prioritized ecological restoration, achieving the United Nations’ land degradation neutrality target in 2020. This study examines the viability of investing in ecosystem restoration in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, focusing on projects at Ma’anshan Farm and Zhihui Farm, revitalized through the Asian Development Bank-supported initiatives. Findings suggest that ecological restoration can be economically viable, offering mutual benefits for the environment, economy, and society. The importance of careful design and implementation is emphasized as essential for success.
