After a thorough analysis of the current situation and the challenges and opportunities for remote sensing work during the Twelfth Five-Year Plan Period, the meeting stressed the tasks we will face in the remote sensing work in 2011 and the Twelfth Five-year Plan Period:
Continue to carry out the scientific development outlooks and give top priority to production administration and macro decision-making service;
Firmly push forward the implementation of the Twelfth Five-Year Plan and continuously improve the remote sensing monitoring system construction;
Actively expand the monitoring areas and spaces, set up and gradually improve the monitoring and estimation system of major crops;
Constantly extend the remote sensing application and steadily push forward the investigation and monitoring of agricultural resources;
Strengthen the innovation ability of remote sensing technology and strive to make breakthroughs in the key remote sensing technologies;
Reinforce the construction of emergency response, including the prediction and estimation of natural disasters;
Commit to international research exchanges and cooperation and strengthen team building;
Positively promote publicity and improve the influence of remote sensing work;
Gradually improve the capability to serve the production administration, major crop trade and macroscopic decision-making.
During the meeting, on behalf of Nanjing Sub-center of the Remote Sensing Application Center of the Ministry of Agriculture, Director Liu Huazhou of the Institute of Agricultural Economy and Information signed the 2011 remote sensing project responsibility agreement with the Department of Research and Department of Extension of the Ministry of Agriculture. The meeting also invited 8 experts from home and abroad to make special trainings of crop yield estimation, disaster monitoring, agricultural statistics, project application and financial management.
After the meeting, the attendants visited Nanjing Sub-center of the Remote Sensing Application Center of the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ecological Park of JAAS.
