ANSO-Environment and Green Development was held on Nov.4 and Nov. 5, 2018. Over 156 scientists from 21 countries met in Beijing to discuss green development in the Belt and Road region.

The session included 23 presentations and mainly focused on Water Tower of Asia under climate change and its impacts on Silk Road, ecosystem change in the coupled human-natural system over Tibetan Plateau and coping strategy, a green Silk Road, and from Third Pole to Three Poles Environment.

During the meeting, scientists discussed the role of science in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), emphasized Arctic and Pan-Third Pole Environment changes and their impacts on climate/weather, and reviewed water security, livelihood, and ecosystem in the BRI regions.

Aiming to promote an inclusive and win-win BRI, they expressed the demand for interdisciplinary/transdisciplinary research, interactions/linkages among scales, sectors and disciplines, and mechanisms for science-policy-society dialogues, and the necessity to conduct environmental and social-economic assessment in the region to create different strategies for developed and developing Regions

The participants agreed to work together to promote development of monitoring and models for seamless prediction, collection and management of big data. Also, efforts will be made in nature-based solutions, risk assessment and hazard alert system.

Supported by the program of Pan-Third Pole Environment Study for a Green Silk Road (Pan-TPE) launched by Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), this meeting was held as a parallel session of the First General Assembly of the Alliance of International Science Organization (ANSO) in the Belt and Road Region & The Second International Science Forum of Scientific Organizations on the Belt and Road Initiative.
