Other Achievements

  • ESPRE Director, Prof. Shi Peijun undertook the task from the Earthquake Resistance and Disaster Relief Expert Group of National Disaster Reduction Committee & Ministry of Science and Technology as well as National Wenchuan Earthquake Expert Committee, and chiefly edited four volumes of scholar books and one Atlas published for reference.
  • ESPRE took the lead in organizing the compilation of the National “12th Five-year” Disaster Prevention and Reduction Planning.
  • ESPRE systematically completed the scientific and technical support consulting for Southern Ice-rain Disaster and Wenchuan Earthquake, and prepared the internal documents of scientific and technical consulting to cope with the two catastrophes.
  • IHDP-IRG International Core Scientific Planning initiated by ESPRE Director, Professor Shi Peijun and Carlo Jacger, has become one important planning initiated and led by the Chinese scientists in the global change science, indicating that China’s researches in this field has moved toward to the international leading level.
