Zhejiang's Green Rural Revival Program won in the Inspiration and Action category, one of five categories at the awards, "for the transformation of a once-heavily polluted area of rivers and streams", according to the website of the United Nations Environment Program.

"This exceptionally successful eco-restoration program shows the transformative power of economic and environmental development together," said the website.
