In addition, the experts of the review team made speeches in succession and reviewed the project achievements.
The review team pointed out the project achievements of three major systems, specifically, the value system that guides the sustainable development of urban construction in China based on the basic consensus framework of the world sustainable development, the inheritance of outstanding Chinese culture and the response to the leading changes in contemporary science and technology; the development strategic system of typical professional fields in relation to the sustainable development of urban construction; the implementation guarantee system regarding the sustainable development strategy of urban construction. The project research highlights strategic, forward-looking, comprehensive and innovative features, especially achieving significant breakthroughs in problem-oriented research thinking and interdisciplinary research. The achievements will provide important strategic and technical support for the sustainable development of urban construction in China so as to promote the healthy and orderly development of urban construction in the socialism new era with Chinese characteristics.
“The Study on the Sustainable Development Strategy of Urban Construction in China”, as a major counseling researchproject initiated by the Chinese Academy of Engineering in 2017, closely targeted the noticeable problems and strategic demands in urban construction under the background of “new-type urbanization”, analyzed and summarized the problems and experience in the course of urban construction both at home and abroad, and elaborated on the new demands and new aspirations of current social and economic development to the urban construction. Besides, this project initiatedfrom establishing the system of sustainable development value emphasizing on both science and humanity, thus proposed the selection of core strategy regarding the sustainable development of urban construction in China inconsideration of urban space development, protection of environmental resources, infrastructure construction, optimization of transportation development mode, calamity reduction and prevention for the safety purpose, and implementation of the guarantee system, etc.. Upon studies for over two years, all the research work has been accomplished.
The project leaders include Cheng Taining and Wang Jianguo, the project consultant is Pan Yunhe, the research team covers nearly 300 experts from a dozen of institutions including major universities, research institutes and enterprises, etc. engaged in urban construction under the leadership of 26 academicians respectively from the Department of Civil Engineering, Water Resources and Architecture, the Department of Environment and Textile Engineering, the Department of Information and Electronic Engineering, and the Department of Engineering Management, etc. under the Chinese Academy of Engineering.
