In order to solve the problems in the construction of desert roads and improve the quality of desert roads in China this paper discusses the current windbreak and sand fixation technologies in desert areas in China and puts forward relevant suggestions and corresponding solutions for each problem. This paper is written with hopes of contributing to the development of windbreak and sand fixation technologies in China as well as the development of the economy society and environment in China's deserts.
