Pyongyang, February 13 (KCNA) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea worked out the 2019-2030 state strategy for environmental protection and has launched the works for its realization.

In this regard, Kim Kwang Jin, department director of the Ministry of Land and Environment Protection, told KCNA:

The twelve-year strategy focuses on illuminating in a scientific way the direction and ways for decisively improving the country's environmental protection work in keeping with the developing reality. Its general goal is to prevent the environmental pollution, put the overall ecological environment of the country on a recovery state and lay a material and technical foundation for switching over to the green economy.

It is planned to increase the electricity output by natural energy, the recycling rate of industrial waste, the overall utility rate of domestic garbage and the city afforestation rate, along with expansion of the area of natural reserves. Also, the strategy envisages the reduction of greenhouse gas emission by 16.4 percent until 2030. And the greenhouse gas emission will be cut down additionally by 36 percent under the progress of international cooperation according to the Paris Agreement on the Issue of Climate Change.

The DPRK government set it as the way for realizing this strategy to develop the environmental science and technology, improve the state environmental management and wage the environmental protection work on a nation-wide scale.

As the first stage for realizing the strategy, such works will be hastened this year, too, as to prevent the expansion of environmental pollution and establish a monitoring system for atmosphere and water environment in major cities and water areas and a system for grasping the pollution matter discharge by areas, sectors and units.

Meanwhile, industrial establishments across the country are pushing ahead with the work to prepare sanitation facilities like gas- and dust-collection facilities and wastewater treatment plants 100 percent.
