Highlights not complete

Highlights (not complete)

  • Having very good discussion with overall aspects in the river basin with: – Droughts and food security; – Floods and the environment; – Institutions and policy for ecologically sound management of water resources.


Highlights

Highlights

  • Target for managing water – sustainability, which is to be trust of the Sustainability Science as a new discipline.

  • For coping with impacts of climate variability and change on water systems, an adaptation seems to be advisable option.

  • With increasing growth of population and socio-economical development, a great impacts are expected by these anthropogenic activities


Highlights1

Highlights

  • Price elasticity of water fee plays a big role in managing water against water wasting


Highlights2

Highlights

  • Water cycle and water balance is the base on which water science and technology for water management can be advanced.

  • To leave uncertainty in changing of natural water systems with climate for scientists and to let stakeholders keep certaintyfor carefully managing their water resources.

  • To build up bridge between stakeholders and water managers with scientists through the dialog..


Highlights3

Highlights

  • Environmental/ecological demand is being considered as one of the demand sectors that should be taken into account.


Highlights4

Highlights

  • Climate variability (CV) is increasing, bringing about a higher risk of more frequent and more severe droughts and floods. Coping with increased CV requires implementing of Integrated Water Resources Management, and possibly additional institutional arrangements will have to be made.


Highlights5

Highlights

  • YRCC is preparing a separate Yellow River Law. This is being done because of the specific character of the basin, in particular the erosion and sediment problems of the river and with 9 independed administrative provinces.


Highlights6

Highlights

  • YRCC will have to develop an integrated development and management plan for the whole basin, in cooperation with other ministries and the provinces.
