Vigorous Relief Efforts Made in Resources and Environment Fields

Organized by MOST and related authorities, experts and researchers working on projects on resources and environment under the 863 Program and the National Key Technologies R&D Program have played important roles in disaster relief and reconstruction after the deadly May 12 earthquake. They either put forward suggestions and proposals or carried out field studies at the quake-stricken areas.

Suggestions were made to ensure drinking water safety. The Card of Knowledge on Drinking Water Safety in Quake-stricken Areas was compiled and distributed. Teamwork on ecological restoration and reconstruction was carried out in a number of fields including evaluation of eco-destruction, monitoring of wildlife zoonoses, and protection of rare and endangered wild animals. Efforts were also made to provide technical backing to waste treatment and the clear-up of debris.
