NA­TIONAL VN to com­plete leg­is­la­tion on re­mote sens­ing

Viet Nam News - - FRONT PAGE -

HAØ NOÄI — The Min­istry of Nat­u­ral Re­sources and En­vi­ron­ment (MONRE) re­cently pro­posed a draft de­cree on re­mote sens­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

The de­cree aims to com­plete poli­cies on the use of high tech­nol­ogy in man­ag­ing nat­u­ral re­sources and the en­vi­ron­ment.

Re­mote sens­ing tech­nol­ogy has been an im­por­tant tool for the as­sess­ment and man­age­ment of nat­u­ral re­sources, en­vi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tion, nat­u­ral dis­as­ter preven­tion and se­cu­rity and de­fence in Vieät Nam for years.

How­ever, State man­age­ment of this field was only of­fi­cially ap­plied in 2013 with a de­cree reg­u­lat­ing the func­tion, rights, obli­ga­tions and or­gan­i­sa­tion of MONRE, in­clud­ing the of­fi­cial es­tab­lish­ment of the Depart­ment of Na­tional Re­mote Sens­ing.

Af­ter five years, a sys­tem of le­gal doc­u­ments has been re­viewed and sup­ple­mented. But it still lacks a le­gal ba­sis for re­mote sens­ing, ac­cord­ing to the min­istry.

MONRE is draft­ing a de­cree on re­mote sens­ing, spec­i­fy­ing prin­ci­ples in these ac­tiv­i­ties such as pro­vid­ing re­mote sens­ing im­ages for ba­sic and pro­fes­sional sur­vey and map­ping, reg­u­larly up­dates of data and in­for­ma­tion, mon­i­tor­ing nat­u­ral re­sources and the en­vi­ron­ment, search and res- cue, dis­as­ter preven­tion, re­sponse to cli­mate change and en­sur­ing na­tional de­fence and se­cu­rity.

The na­tional re­mote sens­ing data­base will be main­tained, op­er­ated and up­dated reg­u­larly and used to up­date the na­tional ge­o­graph­i­cal spa­tial sys­tem.

Ac­cord­ing to the min­istry, the pol­icy frame­work, le­gal doc­u­ments, stan­dard sys­tem and tech­ni­cal reg­u­la­tions of re­mote sens­ing will be for­mu­lated by 2025 and le­gal frame­work will be com­pleted by 2030.

MONRE will build and de­velop a net­work of re­mote sens­ing data re­ceivers (fixed sta­tions, mo­bile sta­tions and vir­tual sta­tions), control sta­tions, re­mote sens­ing data pro­cess­ing and re­mote sens­ing data trans­mis­sion net­works to pro­vide re­mote sens­ing data to min­istries, sec­tors and lo­cal­i­ties.

Hu­man re­source de­vel­op­ment, sci­en­tific re­search, the de­vel­op­ment of re­mote sens­ing tech­nol­ogy and ex­pand­ing in­ter­na­tional co-op­er­a­tion on re­mote sens­ing with other coun­tries will be strength­ened.

The min­istry will pub­li­cise the plan­ning and list of in­vest­ment projects to en­cour­age do­mes­tic and for­eign or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­di­vid­u­als to par­tic­i­pate.

There will be pref­er­en­tial poli­cies to at­tract do­mes­tic and for­eign in­vestors to carry out projects in Vieät Nam.

The draft will be pro­posed to the Na­tional Assem­bly to pro­mul­gate the Law on Re­mote Sens­ing and sub­mit to the Prime Minister a mas­ter plan on de­vel­op­ment of the na­tional re­mote sens­ing. — VNS
