Govt Targets Land Pollution to Ensure Food Security

From China Daily:

The Ministry of Environmental Protection is strengthening measures to hold polluting companies accountable for land amid increasing public health hazards triggered by soil . They will be held responsible for land , regardless of any change in their management structure, including restructuring, merger or dissolution.

According to the directive, “the company which inherits the debts and rights (of the polluter) should shoulder the responsibility” for providing financial assistance to restore the productivity of polluted land.

Land pollution is an increasing concern, as it poses a threat to food security. “Land pollution has directly led to declining food quality,” Sun Tiehang, an ecologist and member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, told the Guangzhou-based Nanfang Daily.
