Jingzhu Zhao
Other AbstractAs one of the eighteen field-specific reports comprising the comprehensive scope of the strategic general report of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, this sub-report addresses long-range planning for developing science and technology in the field of ecological and environmental science. ~hey each craft a roadmap for their sphere of development to 2050. In their entirety, the general and sub-group reports analyze the evolution and laws governing the development of science and echnology, describe the decisive impact of science and technology on the modernization, process, predict that the world is on the eve of an impending S&T revolution, and call for China to be fully prepared for this new round of S&T advancement. Based on the detailed study of the demands on S&T innovation in Chinas modernization, the reports draw a framework for eight basic and strategic systems of socio-economic development with the support of science and technology, work out Chinas S&T roadmaps for the relevant eight basic and strategic systems in line with Chinas reality, further detail S&T initiatives of strategic importance to Chinas modernization, and provide S&T decision-makers with comprehensive consultations for the development of S&T innovation consistent with Chinas reality. Supported by illustrations and tables of data, the reports provide researchers, government officials and entrepreneurs with guidance concerning research directions, the planning process, and investment. Founded in 1949, the Chinese Academy of Sciences is the nations highest academic . institution in natural sciences. Its major responsibilities are to conduct research in basic and technological sciences, to undertake nationwide integrated surveys .on natural resources and ecological environment, to provide the country with scientific data and consultations for governments decision-making, to undertake government- assigned projects with regard to key S&T problems in the process of socio-economic development, to initiate personnel training, and to promote Chinas high-tech enterprises through its active engagement in these areas.

  CAS is the nations think tank for science. Its major responsibility is toprovide S&T consultations for the nations decision-makings and to take thelead in the nations S&T development.
  In July, 2007, President Yongxiang Lu made the following remarks: "Inorder to carry out the Scientific Outlook of Development through innovation,further strategic research should be done to lay out a S&T roadmap for thenext 20-30 years and key S&T innovation disciplines. And relevant workshopsshould be organized with the participation of scientists both within CAS andoutside to further discuss the research priorities and objectives. We shouldno longer confine ourselves to the free discovery of science, the quantity andquality of scientific papers, nor should we satisfy ourselves simply with thePrincipal Investigators system of research. Research should be conducted toaddress the needs of both the nation and society, in particular, the continuedgrowth of economy and national competitiveness, the development of socialharmony, and the sustainability between man and nature. "
  According to the Executive Management Committee of CAS in July, 2007,CAS strategic research on S&T roadmap for future development should beconducted to orchestrate the needs of both the nation and society, and target atthe three objectives: the growth of economy and national competitiveness, thedevelopment of social harmony, and the sustainability between man and nature.
