Work ExperienceBefore 1985, my working experiences were about forest sampling survey and continuous inventory, forestry development planning, forest resource consumption and afforestation investigation, etc. In 1986-1991, as the project leader and first scientist researcher on the national scientific and technical key project "Remote Sensing Research on Renewable Natural Resources in desert oasis areas of Xinjiang Autonomous Region". During 1992-1994, I was in charge of the project of Trend research on China's Forest Resources (1993-2010); As a consultant worked for two projects of the World Bank. One was China GEF-B project about nature reserves and biodiversity conservation. Another was China Shulehe Project about agricultural comprehensive development in dry arid area of Gansu Province. From 1994 until now, I am the technical chief of China national desertification survey, monitoring and information management project.
