Strategic Research Areas


Resource Management and Planning

Our research covers multiple natural resources, particularly on energy, water and tourism resources. Future studies will center around their management and planning that (1) have impacts on the natural environment, including pollution and conservation, and (2) affect their sustainable utilization by human society. Research will mainly examine natural resource management and planning practice, evaluate their impacts and develop related theories. Our present strength lies in mainly four aspects, respectively the enforcement and compliance of energy and environmental policies, water resource management under constrained supply, sustainable tourism, ecotourism and geo-parks. We will continue to put Hong Kong and Mainland China as our main regional focus and gradually extend the geographic coverage to major developed and developing countries. Interdisciplinary studies will be further emphasized to solve real-world problems without disciplinary boundaries. We aim to develop into a regional research hub on natural resource management and planning.
