Land degradation, Northwest, Status type, Control measures.


China is one of the countries in the world where land desertification and desertification have a large area, widespread distribution, and serious damage. Degraded lands in China are mainly distributed in the arid regions of the northwest. Land degradation not only directly endangers the survival and development of more than 1.4 billion people in China, but also seriously affects the living environment and quality of life of human beings, and it is urgent to prevent them. This paper analyzes the types and current status of land degradation in Northwest my country, and proposes corresponding prevention and control measures to better protect the severely degraded land, in order to provide some valuable theoretical references for subsequent research directions.
