Twelve CPPCC members, experts and scholars advised and advised on the funding of ecological compensation, coordination mechanisms, social participation, and the protection of the rule of law. More than 160 members actively expressed their opinions on the mobile duty performance platform of the CPPCC National Committee members. Everyone believes that since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, under the scientific guidance of Xi Jinping's thoughts on ecological civilization, relevant parties have made a lot of useful explorations around the construction of ecological compensation mechanisms, and set up a basic institutional framework and policy system in a short time. Especially in the context of the rising contradictions in fiscal revenue and expenditure in recent years, the ecological compensation investment has increased significantly, and the scope of compensation has gradually expanded, which is not easy. At the same time, we must also see that ecological compensation involves a wide range of issues and complicated interest relationships. There are also problems such as inadequate laws and regulations, incomplete compensation mechanisms, a single compensation funding channel, and the need to improve compensation efficiency. It needs to be consolidated and improved中 development.
The members suggested that the legislation of ecological compensation should be promoted, and the principles, fields, scope, objects, standards, sources of funds and the rights and obligations of relevant stakeholders should be clarified. It is necessary to continue to play the role of the main channel of fiscal funds, moderately increase the fiscal transfer payments to the banned and restricted development areas, at the same time strengthen the implementation of projects and the use of funds to improve the overall benefits of ecological compensation. It is necessary to accelerate the construction of a market-oriented and diversified ecological compensation mechanism, promote market-based transactions such as emission rights, carbon emission rights, water rights, and forest rights, explore the establishment of an "ecological bank" system, introduce an auction system of "franchise rights," and open up the "green" "Shui Qingshan" to "Jinshan Yinshan" conversion channel. It is necessary to strengthen the integration of compensation funds, promote information sharing between relevant departments, and strengthen the overall coordination of ecological compensation across regions. It is necessary to improve the ecological resource dynamic monitoring system and ecosystem value accounting index system, and introduce third-party institutions to objectively and scientifically evaluate the value of ecological assets and the cost of ecological protection, and lay a solid foundation for establishing an ecological compensation mechanism.
