Recently, the Ministry of Water Resources formulated and issued the “Key Points for Water Resources Management in 2024” (hereinafter referred to as the “Key Points”), further clarifying the implementation steps for strict and detailed management of my country’s water resources.
The “Key Points” focus on controlling the total amount of water resources development and utilization; strengthening the supervision and management of water consumption; continuing to revive the ecological environment of rivers and lakes; and consolidating the support of water resources management capabilities.
According to the relevant person in charge of the Water Resources Management Department of the Ministry of Water Resources, the general idea of water resources management in 2024 is to implement the rigid water resource restriction system as the main line, with the goal of maintaining a good ecology and ensuring high-quality economic and social development water needs, and insisting on careful budgeting and use. Good water resources, strict and careful management of water resources, control the total amount of water resources development and utilization, strengthen the supervision and management of water consumption, continue to revive the ecological environment of rivers and lakes, consolidate the support of water resources management capabilities, and promote economic and social development that is determined by water. Measure water and act accordingly to provide strong water resources support for the comprehensive construction of a modern socialist country.
Experts in the industry believe that to solve the contradiction between water supply and demand, we must not only follow the laws of nature, strengthen the rigid constraints of water resources, and meet water demand based on local water, but cannot rely on over-exploitation of water resources. We must also exert our subjective initiative and follow real needs and ecological needs. The principles of safety and sustainability take water diversion and diversion into consideration. Strengthening rigid constraints on water resources and scientific implementation of water diversion projects are both aimed at solving the contradiction between water supply and demand. Strengthening rigid constraints aims to determine demand based on water supply, suppress unreasonable demand, and adapt economic activities to water resources carrying capacity: the implementation of water diversion projects aims to increase the effective supply of water resources and meet the rigid demand for water resources. Achieve spatial balance on a larger scale and improve water resources carrying capacity as a whole.
Previously, the Ministry of Water Resources held a symposium on water resources management. The meeting required that all efforts should be made to complete the key tasks of water resources management in 2024. Strengthen the support of water resources management capabilities, focus on the legal construction, information construction and technical standards improvement of water resources management, promote the reform of water rights and water resources taxes, and give full play to the “baton” role of assessment.
It is understood that since 2023, my country’s water resources management work has made positive progress and results. Important progress has been made in promoting the establishment of a rigid water resource restriction system. Water abstraction supervision and management have been effectively strengthened. The ecological environment of rivers and lakes has made significant progress in recovery. Groundwater protection and governance have been further advanced. Water resources management reform and capacity building continue to be strengthened.
