Plan targets geological disasters
    2018-07-30  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE municipal government recently released an official plan to prevent and handle natural disasters from 2016 to 2025, addressing detailed goals and methods to prevent geological disasters, the Shenzhen Special Zone Daily reported.

Preventing natural disasters is one of the most pivotal tasks the government faces during flood season, as heavy rains and unexpected typhoons are believed to bring along more natural disasters during this time of the year.

The plan requires government departments at all levels in all districts and new areas to further improve management, evaluation and monitoring systems for the prevention and treatment of all types of natural disasters.

A person in charge at the city’s urban planning, land and resources commission analyzed the severe challenges currently facing Shenzhen. It was mentioned that through its fast development over more than three decades, Shenzhen has been constantly dealing with disasters, including landslides and mountain collapses, caused by construction activities like underground building projects and land reclamation.

Reducing the potential risks of geological disasters is a tough mission for the local government at the moment, said the person in charge.

According to monitoring results and analysis, several areas face a greater risk of experiencing new geological disasters than others. These include mountainous areas like Wutong Mountain, Yangtai Mountain, Paiya Mountain and Maluan Mountain.

Also, areas undergoing major construction work, including the Meilin-Caitian area, the airport zone, the Dayun area, the Guangming Fenghuangcheng area and the Qianhai-Shekou area, are among the hazardous zones. Additionally, areas undergoing construction work for Metro lines need extra attention.

Based on the situation, the plan has mapped out solutions with specific goals. For instance, grass-roots government departments are required to dispatch a larger number of professional inspectors to continuously monitor the geological situation and increase investment for emergency vehicles and devices for handling natural disasters.

Moreover, the plan suggests developing smart digital platforms that are better at managing real-time data and information about high-risk areas, as well as incorporating government departments and the strength of the entire society to prevent geological disasters. (Zhang Qian)
