The Bulletin of Chinese Academy of Sciences recently published a special issue co-authored by co-chairs of the Digital Belt and Road (DBAR) Program's working groups and task forces, and their international partners, featuring research using Earth observation for various aspects of the Belt and Road's sustainable development.
Based on DBAR, the special issue of the Bulletin of Chinese Academy of Sciences, titled "Safeguarding the Belt and Road with Space Science and Technology", will comprehensively highlight the capacity and role of space technology in supporting the Belt and Road initiative. DBAR will provide strong support for sustainable development along the Belt and Road and make continual, high-level contributions to the initiative.
The articles cover the following fields: ecological environment, global agricultural monitoring, cultural heritage protection, disaster risk reduction, water resource monitoring and use, urban planning, and climate change, especially in high-mountain and cold regions.
