The World Data Center for Renewable Resources and Environment (WDC-RRE) [1] has been a regular member of the World Data System of International Council for Science (ICSU-WDS) since 2011 [2]. It also served as a former ICSU World Data Center (WDC) member since 1988, which is one of the earliest data centers in the former WDC family. The WDC-RRE is under the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research (IGSNRR) [3, 4], which is a research institute with the best research capabilities in geography, resources, and environment in China [5]. The IGSNRR is affiliated with two first-class societies: the Geographical Society of China and the China Society of Natural Resources [6, 7]. The WDC-RRE ensures the long-term stewardship and provision of quality-assessed data and data services to the international science community and other stakeholders. It strives to become a long-term data archiving and sharing center in the resources and environmental fields in China. The WDC-RRE is primarily responsible for the storage of scientific data in the resource environment domain, which involves eight special databases [8]: Basic geographic database, natural resources database, population and social economy database, disaster risk reduction database, land use and land cover database, the Loess plateau agriculture and environment database, temperature spatial database, and regional and thematic database. The WDC-RRE actively coordinates the collaboration between the WDS China Center and ICSU-WDS IPO, and organizes many data sharing seminars and exchanges in the China Center [9]. At the same time, the WDC RRE is also a technical support unit for the WDS China data exchange center [10]. In recent years, the WDC-RRE has continued to hold international training classes to promote the cultivation of young scientists and encourage more people to be interested in and participate in the training and classes by the ICSU-WDS experts, and relevant international and national experts [11, 12].
