China Daily (Canada) - - TOP NEWS - By ZHENG JINRAN zhengjin­ran@chi­nadaily.com.cn

China is plan­ning its sec­ond na­tional cen­sus of pol­lu­tion sources, aim­ing to present a clear pic­ture of the sit­u­a­tion and an­a­lyz­ing the ca­pac­ity to con­trol it, the cen­tral gov­ern­ment said onWed­nes­day.

The cen­sus is meant to pro­vide solid in­for­ma­tion to help gov­ern­ments de­sign bet­ter­tar­geted pro­tec­tion projects and poli­cies for the en­vi­ron­ment, and make their de­ci­sions more sci­en­tific, the State Coun­cil said in a state­ment.

There will be a spe­cial lead­ing com­mit­tee to guide the sec­ond cen­sus work, chaired by Vice-Premier Zhang Gaoli, and 15 min­is­te­rial level de­part­ments will be in­volved, the state­ment said.
