The national park system is an important part of China's reform process towards promoting ecological progress. As the National Park Law has been included in the national legislative plan, China is exploring its own national park management system. This is not only an important step taken by China towards the development of its ecological civilization, but will, by extension, also play a huge role in the conservation and sustainable use of global natural resources.
The core task is to appropriately handle the relationship between central and local governments, optimize allocation of management agencies’ respective authorities, and adapt national park management models to local conditions. These issues will have to be addressed by the National Park Law and are key to the law’s future implementation.
