SHIJIAZHUANG Nike Shox Turbo Hombre España , Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Forest rangers in northern China's Saihanba Forest Farm recently received a prestigious UN
environment award.

On Tuesday, Saihanba afforestation community in Inner Mongolia scooped the UN Champions of the Earth Award for its outstanding contribution to restoration of
degraded landscapes.

"As an ordinary worker at the farm, I am immensely encouraged by the award Nike Shox R4 Hombre España ," said fire-lookout Zhao Fuzhou.

"The award should be credited to three generations of foresters," said Zhao Zhenyu, 78 Nike Shox Hombre España , one of Saihanba's first foresters, who began planting trees on what was then a piece of barren land in the early 1960s.

After decades of hard work, Saihanba is now a vast forest covering about 93 Nike Shox Negras España ,000 hectares and an important ecological shield for Beijing and Tianjin.

Every year the forest in Saihanba purifies 137 million cubic meters of water and delivers half a million tons of oxygen.

"Fifty-five years of afforestation efforts tell us that when one generation of foresters after another spares no efforts to improve the environment they
will succeed," Zhao Zhenyu said.

Erik Solheim, executive director of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Nike Shox Blancas España , hailed Saihanba community for its pioneering innovation, saying that cost effective grassroots initiatives could reclaim degraded

"The Saihanba afforestation community has transformed degraded land into lush green paradise -- part of a new Great Wall of vegetation that will play a part
in helping protect millions from air pollution and preserving precious water
supplies," Solheim said.

The international acclaim has made Saihanba's foresters feel that they shoulder greater responsibilities in afforestation to contribute to a greener

"Winning acknowledgement from UNEP marked a new starting point for our work Nike Shox Gravity España , and we will redouble our efforts to take good care of the green treasure," said An Changming, deputy Party chief of the Saihanba Forest

In 2016 www.nikeshox-espana.es , the restored forest in Saihanba stimulated green sectors of the economy, generating
an estimated 15.1 million U.S. dollars.

Looking ahead, foresters at the farm are aiming to unleash greater potential of the forest in areas such as tourism Comprar Nike Shox España , wind power, and carbon trading, bringing more ecological Nike Shox España Baratas , social and economic benefits to residents in the region and beyond.

NAIROBI, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- Top Kenyan track and field stars have hailed the initiative that will see a pool of experienced local doctors vet them of doping
before being allowed to feature in international meets.

Athletics Kenya (AK) on Tuesday announced a programme in conjunction with world governing body - the IAAF - and the Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya (ADAK)
that will see only athletes given the green light to compete by the Kenya
Doctors Network (KDN) entered in competition.

This is aimed at getting the country off the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) watch list following the spike of doping cases in the global distance running

"It is in this regard that we have worked on an action plan with IAAF to deal with the utmost importance and priority levels in order to confine the actual
doping epidemic in the country.

"This plan is such that a first sample of trusted and skilled Kenyan doctors has been identified to form the KDN. Their responsibility is to take care of
Kenyan top-level runners and limit bad medical practices and doping promotion
behaviours by some Kenyan health professionals," AK President Lt. Gen (Rtd)
Jackson Tuwei said.

Consequently, the federation has invited 108 elite athletes to a seminar in the distance running heartland of Eldoret in northern Kenya where the new
programme will be rolled out.

Convicted drug cheat and the poster girl of Kenyan doping, Rita Jeptoo, whose ban was extended to four years following an appeal by world body IAAF against
the initial two-year suspension by AK late last year, is among those invited for
the seminar.

Others include Olympic champions, David Rudisha (men 800m), Eliud Kipchoge (men marathon), Conseslus Kipruto (men 3000m steeplechase), Vivian Cheruiyot
(women 5000m), Faith Chepng'etich Kipyegon (women 1500m) and Jemimah Sumgong
(women marathon).

World champions, Asbel Kiprop (men 1500m), Julius Yego (men Javelin) and Nicholas Bett (men 400m Hurdles) are among a slew of distance running greats
expected to converge for the seminar.

Two-time world marathon champion and 2012 Olympics silver winner, Abel Kirui welcomed the programme saying it would go a long way assuring the world Kenyan
runners compete clean.

"It's a good idea to root the

The 2015 Chicago Marathon champion who was beaten by Kirui to the crown last year added the initiative would help weed out those potential drug cheats before
they leave the country.

"The world will know that we do not need to dope to win. They will know that we are purely talented and be assured that our athletes compete clean and fair,"
added Chumba who is aiming to reclaim his Tokyo Marathon he last won in 2014
next month.

"Though I do not know much about the Network, I hope we shall learn a lot and know what is expected of us and how to access the doctors," he added.

Kiprop who is going for a fourth world title in London this summer also supported the programme.

"It's a good idea to root the
"It's a good idea to root them off before spoiling for majority who are running clean," he added

AK has turned to the Network following concern over the rise of doping cases that saw the country placed on the WADA watch list last year, a status that was
extended to 2017 despite the enactment of a law that outlaws doping and
establishment of ADAK.

The doping crisis in the country saw the nation's track and field team being threatened with an international ban hence missing the Rio Olympics last summer
