   Dr.  Lv Yonglong, researcher from Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) was elected the first Vice President of Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment (SCOPE) at its 13th General Assembly held in London.

   SCOPE was created by the 10th meeting of the Executive Committee of International Council for Science (ICSU) in 1969. It is a worldwide network to guide and develop scientific programs on environmental problems, consisting of 40 national science academies and research councils, 22 international scientific unions, committees and societies.

   China became one of its members in 1988. Six scientists from mainland China have joined the scientific committee in the last 20 years.
