Solution Search: Lijiang Health and Environmental Research Center in China

Under the influence of modernization, the aboriginal communities of Lisu people in Liguang Village have undergone changes in their production and lifestyles, resulting in river pollution. The project tapped into the pride of the villagers in their community and promoted the autonomous governance of the community based on its own culture, which led to changes in village rules and regulations and stopped the villagers’ dumping of domestic garbage into the river. The end in use of chemical reagents when catching fish has gradually solved the pollution problem of rivers and restored and proliferated almost extinct fish resources. At the same time, the community used the project funds to establish a community mutual aid fund to provide financial support for the improvement of villagers’ livelihoods, promote the free development of villagers, and strengthen community unity.
