Chongming Eco-Island Construction Outline (2010-2020)——A Supporting System for Chongming Eco-Island Construction

The construction of the Chongming eco-island is a long-term task that needs the efforts of the entire municipality and better mechanisms and systems. Therefore, we will form a feasible, assessable and sustainable supporting system through overall coordination, careful organization and reinforced supporting policies.

1.1 We will establish and improve a promotion system to promote overall coordination in Chongming eco-island construction.
We will heighten organizational leadership by establishing a joint conference system composed of relevant authorities led by municipal leaders to coordinate to solve major problems in Chongming eco-island construction.
We will specify responsibilities by establishing a Chongming-District-Government-based accountability mechanism with the cooperation of the project departments.
We will establish an expert advisory group composed of senior specialists from the project-related fields to provide the leading group with technical support and advices as well as encourage and guide all quarters of the society to participate in Chongming eco-island construction.
1.2 We will formulate a three-year action plan to form a sustainable mechanism for rolling development.
We should set the overall objective according to the construction outline with both current and long-term development in mind. We will formulate a three-year action plan for Chongming eco-island construction and apply key measures to specific construction projects in a gradual and orderly manner for rolling development.
1.3 We will establish a monitoring and assessment to enhance performance management in the eco-island construction.
We will build a network system to monitor land use, the quality of water environment, atmospheric environment and acoustic environment etc., and the ecosystems including aquatic ecosystem and wetland ecosystem; carry out systematic and comprehensive evaluation; release the results regularly; and accept the supervision by the masses.
We will build an tracking mechanism to evaluate the land use pattern, water environment and atmospheric environment once a year and soil environment and ecosystem once every three years. In addition, we will include the management performance in the eco-island construction into administrative evaluation system to intensify the responsibility restraint.
1.4 We will encourage cooperation and exchanges for a development pattern of communal participation.
We will mobilize and promote the participation of island enterprises such as Bright Food (Group) Co., Ltd. and Shanghai Industrial Dongtan Investment and Development (Group) Co. Ltd. as an important driving force for Chongming eco-island construction.
We will intensify our cooperation with our neighboring provinces and cities, especially with Jiangsu Province's Qilong district and Haiyong district located on Chongming Island on resources utilization and environmental protection with unified planning and coordinated implementation to promote Chongming eco-island construction.
We will intensify our cooperation with relevant ministries so that Chongming eco-island construction could be included into their special planning and pilot reform projects to seek capital, technology and talent support from the state.
We will intensify international cooperation and exchanges concerning global  eco-island construction by advantages of technological innovation and optimized management to attract organizations, businesses and social groups of the international community to participate in Chongming eco-island construction; and enhance information communications, learn from advanced international experience, reinforce low-carbon technologies' research, development, demonstration and promotion and improve laws and management systems as well.

When implementing the existing laws and rules, we will learn lessons from and study development tendency of international eco-island construction and issue rules, regulations or normative documents concerning Chongming eco-island protection and development based on the objective reality and environment of Shanghai and Chongming Island Construction so as to guide, regulate and supervise the orderly advancement of eco-island construction.
