carrying capacity of water resources
It is necessary to put water conservation first, and accelerate the transformation from extensive and inefficient water use to economical and intensive use for the sustainable development of the Chinese nation.
A mechanism was proposed to assess the carrying capacity of water resources to determine the amount of water that can be used for local development. Water conservation efforts are called for in the whole society.
Emphasis should be placed on around-the-clock and dynamic supervision of water resources, the role of the market in allocating water resources, and supportive legal system for efficient and sustainable water use.
