The Overall Framework and Orientation of Eco-environment Monitoring Network Construction
Wang Haiqin;Gao Shiji;
The development and further improvement of ecological and environmental monitoring system in China will help to improve the quality of ecological and environmental data, enhance the government 's credibility and strengthen the implementation effect of ecological civilization construction. With the deepening of the reform, some deep-seated problems have begun to become prominent: It is very difficult to develop a unified ecological and environmental monitoring system by integrating different systems operated by different line ministries, and by different levels of government. To develop market for ecological and environmental monitoring services through delegation to other non-governmental entities by the government is facing a dilemma. Environmental monitoring services provided by the private providers are in great demand, but the private providers ' capability is still weak.The role of the government monitoring team is essential, but the staffs of the government monitoring team are not appropriately incentivized. The credibility of government-collected data is still insufficient. To move forward and overcome these difficulties, we should spare no efforts to formulate the specialized regulations on ecological and environmental monitoring, provide institutional guarantee for cross-sector collaboration, strengthen government guidance and regulation in ecological and environmental monitoring market and re-build a well-functioning incentive mechanism for the staff.
