As one of many eighteen field-specific studies comprising the great scope of the strategic normal record of the chinese language Academy of Sciences, this sub-report addresses long-range making plans for constructing technology and expertise within the box of agriculture. They each one craft a roadmap for his or her sphere of improvement to 2050. of their entirety, the overall and sub-group reviews research the evolution and legislation governing the improvement of technology and expertise, describe the decisive impression of technology and expertise at the modernization technique, are expecting that the realm is at the eve of an forthcoming S&T revolution, and speak to for China to be absolutely ready for this new around of S&T development. according to the specified learn of the calls for on S&T innovation in China’s modernization, the studies draw a framework for 8 simple and strategic platforms of socio-economic improvement with the help of technological know-how and know-how, figure out China’s S&T roadmaps for the appropriate 8 easy and strategic platforms in response to China’s truth, extra aspect S&T projects of strategic value to China’s modernization, and supply S&T decision-makers with accomplished consultations for the improvement of S&T innovation in keeping with China’s truth. Supported by way of illustrations and tables of information, the experiences offer researchers, govt officers and marketers with tips referring to study instructions, the making plans procedure, and funding. based in 1949, the chinese language Academy of Sciences is the nation’s optimum educational establishment in normal sciences. Its significant duties are to behavior study in easy and technological sciences, to adopt national built-in surveys on traditional assets and ecological atmosphere, to supply the rustic with clinical facts and consultations for government’s decision-making, to adopt government-assigned initiatives in regards to key S&T difficulties within the technique of socio-economic improvement, to begin body of workers education, and to advertise China’s high-tech firms via its lively engagement in those components.

Extra resources for Agricultural Science & Technology in China: A Roadmap to 2050

Example text

Chinese agriculture will face enormous challenges to meet growing domestic demand for agricultural products in both quantity and quality and to improve its agricultural security China has the largest population in the world. In despite of the fact that the population growth rate will slow down in coming years and that the total population will reach the peak before 2050, the huge population base will pose tremendous pressure upon food demand in China in the long term. By 2050, Chinese agricultural will not only have to play the traditional role to increase production and improve human nutrition, but it will also have to adapt to the structural changes of food consumption brought about by improving living standards and the demand for food safety and agricultural multifunction.

20 · Agricultural Science & Technology in China: A Roadmap to 2050 2. Agricultural development in China will face increasingly serious challenges to protect the safety and security of land and water resources Industrialization and urbanization will be inevitable trends in economic development and social civilization development; however, the limited arable land will be occupied continually under this tendency. As the most active growing economies in the world, China will remain a rapid economic growth in the long term, and urbanization will continue to advance rapidly.
