China will have ecology warning system by 2020

China will build a comprehensive monitoring system by 2020 to implement its ecological "red line" strategy and supervise activities inside the nature reserves, the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) said Monday.

This will include a space-ground ecological observation system and a ecological security monitoring system linked up to big data and the Internet, according to the ministry.

China will push forward ecological protection during the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020), as the country still faces a severe condition in this field, said Cheng Lifeng, an official with the MEP.

From this year, authorities will conduct remote sensing monitoring on all national-level nature reserves twice a year, the ministry said, adding that it will build a space-ground observation system with satellite remote sensing technology to monitor ecological changes, Xinhua writes.
