Changbai Mountain Nature Reserve has successively implemented the first two phases of its Master Plan and formulated the 3rd phase Master Plan of Jilin Changbai Mountain National Nature Reserve (2018-2027).  Through active implementation of these science-based plans, Changbai Mountain Nature Reserve has greatly improved in various aspects from infrastructures, biodiversity conservation, forest fire prevention and fighting, research and monitoring to public education and ecotourism.

Enabling factors

Changbai Mountain Protection Development Management Committee was established in 2005, sharing the same staff with Jilin Changbai Mountain National Nature Reserve Management Bureau.  The unified administrative zone and nature reserve enables uniform planning, protection, development and management in Changbai Mountain.  The full amount of funds for the Reserve are provided and guaranteed by the Management Committee.

Lessons learned

1. The Master Plan defines the construction and development of the Reserve in a specified period of time.  It should be both forward-looking and down-to-earth so that construction projects can be pushed forward as scheduled.  

2. The partnership with research and academic institutions should be strengthened so that more experts can share their insights and experiences in economic growth, social development and ecological protection.
