China making water tunnels 7 times longer than world’s longest to irrigate the desert
This project is major of course. It creates the equivalent of the Great valley agriculture. Even that will be a beginning. The irrigation will produce an increase in humidity in the Gobi basin and that will allow atmospheric irrigation as well.
The whole rain shadow of the Himalayas is prime agricultural and forest lands and much larger than China itself. thus this will be a great beginning.
Likely a lot more water can be diverted as well. They need to make India a co development partner in this as they also have the necessary manpower..
