China issued Plan to Digitalise the Governance of Natural Resources

On February 5th, the Ministry of Natural Resources issued the “Overall Plan for Enhancing the Digital Governance Capability of Natural Resources”. It supports the utilisation of new information technologies such as cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, etc. to build “one network, one map, and national spatial basic information platform” for natural resources.

The plan envisions the development of four thematic scenarios: a baseline scenario, a structure-focused scenario, a green and low-carbon scenario, and a scenario focused on the protection of rights. It encourages the utilisation of computing resources, integration and sharing of data resources, opening of application platforms, collaborative scenario services, and reliable online and offline security. This comprehensive support for the digital and intelligent transformation across all natural resource operations aims to facilitate the effective protection, rational use of natural resources and enhance the ecological quality.

Among the four thematic application scenarios, the “structure-oriented scenario” requires an accurate understanding of the state and process of natural resource utilisation, a strengthened guidance for national spatial planning, differentiated control of all areas and elements, and overall promotion of business collaboration and data interconnection between planning and land use control. The “green and low-carbon scenario” requires digitisation, integration, and modernisation throughout the entire process of national spatial governance. The content and requirements of the “structure-oriented scenario” and the “green and low-carbon scenario” are relevant for the Urban-Act project in its mission to support the integration of low-carbon and resilience requirements into urban spatial planning, as well as into the monitoring and evaluation system.
