Liangping District won the “International Wetland City” from the Ramsar Convention this year.

The district has built a national-level wetland park, Shuanggui Lake national wetland park.

It also shines in the protection and utilization of small and micro wetlands. Farmers grew rice, vegetables, lotus, fish, and shrimps in small and micro wetlands, including the district’s many ponds and rice paddies.

Organic agriculture in such mini wetlands helped reduce the use of fertilizers and pesticides. The scenic views also boosted ecological tourism to raise farmers’ incomes.
