China Standardization 2022-05-25

Biopersity and ecosystems feature prominently in many of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and associated targets, as they contribute to economic activities and human well-being. The Strategic Plan for Biopersity 2011-2020 and its Aichi Biopersity Targets adopted under the Convention on Biological Diversity have established the global framework for priority actions on biopersity. Conserving biopersity is to protect human beings, as the persified, healthy ecosystems underpin all lives on the earth and allow us to carry out economic and social activities.

The May/June issue presents a series of articles showcasing the endeavors of China to improve biopersity and ecosystems and how standards play a vital role in this process. Through conservation of giant pandas and their habitats in the past few decades, the number of pandas in the wild has increased from 1,114 to 1,864, which also contributes to the surging flora and fauna in these areas.

In the EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW column, two renowned standardization experts, Wu Hequan, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, and Yu Xinli, President of China Association for Standardization, shared their insights into standards digitalization and suggestions for future work. Standards digitalization is an irresistible trend in the standardization development, which creates golden opportunities for innovation, boosts the reform of standardization methods and management system, but brings unprecedented challenges, said Wu Hequan.

The Two Sessions, the annual meetings of China’s major political bodies, the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and the National People’s Congress (NPC), were convened in Beijing in early March. The SPOTLIGHT column presents the development goals of this year and the views on key topics, such as carbon peak and neutrality, elderly care, artificial intelligence and big data, and how standards facilitate the development in these areas.

With the increasing awareness of biopersity, supporting strategies and action plans, we believe that China will make greater contributions to global biopersity governance and the SDGs!
