Environment, Water Resources and Agricultural Policies

Lessons from China and OECD Countries

image of Environment, Water Resources and Agricultural Policies

China's endowment of water resources is extremely low, poorly distributed, and increasingly polluted.  With agriculture being one of the main consumers of water, China's future development depends on initiatives that will raise the efficiency and efficacy of water use.  These workshop proceedings examine the current situation in China, look at what is being done in OECD countries to manage water resources, and suggest policy options for China.

Résumé

Nourrir la plus forte population du monde avec des ressources limitées – tel est l’audacieux défi auquel sont confrontés les dirigeants chinois. Le capital naturel par habitant de la Chine se situe entre celui de l’Allemagne et celui du Chili pour ce qui concerne les terres arables, tandis que pour les ressources en eau, il est extrêmement faible et mal réparti, la plaine du Nord étant à cet égard l’une des moins bien dotée du monde.
