Hailed as the "roof of the world" and the earth's "third pole", the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is an essential ecological protection barrier for China. However, due to harsh climate conditions and lack of oxygen, the ecology on the world's highest ground is rather delicate and vulnerable, and land desertification is just one of its reflections.

According to the Fifth National Desertification and Sandification Monitoring Report, the desertified land area in Tibet Autonomous Region reaches 43.25 million hectares, accounting for 35.98 percent of the national territorial area of China. The sandy land area in Tibet also amounts to 21.58 million hectares.
