This chapter suggests an overall shift in the philosophy and approach to China’s water resources planning and management, which emphasizes policy reform to promote social equity and environmental recovery. The whole of society must be involved in water savings. Promotion of more small-scale distribution projects can make significant headway in improving environmental systems and distribute some responsibility and power to the local level. In this way, China may ensure sufficient water resources for both society and the environment into the future.

Keywords:   water supply, water resources planning, water policy, social equity, environmental recovery, sustainable management
