China will enhance flood control and river ecological rehabilitation

China is set to bolster its flood control and disaster reduction capabilities while also advancing the restoration of rivers and lakes. During the first eight months of the year, China made a record-breaking investment of 985.6 billion yuan (approximately $137.09 billion) in water conservancy infrastructure, as announced by Minister of Water Resources Li Guoying. This initiative created over 1.97 million jobs and significantly contributed to the country's economic recovery. In this period, a historic high of 23,600 water conservancy projects were initiated.
Furthermore, China has been dedicated to protecting and revitalizing freshwater ecosystems. In 2022, nearly 7 billion cubic meters of water were introduced into 48 rivers and lakes within the Haihe River Basin, leading to improved water quality and more vibrant rivers. This effort was particularly crucial following the largest flood in the Haihe River Basin since 1963 in July, during which 84 large and medium-sized reservoirs stored 2.85 billion cubic meters of floodwater, preventing flooding in 24 towns and safeguarding 7.51 million mu of farmland, benefiting 4.62 million people. China also plans to accelerate the construction of flood control reservoirs, dikes in flood-prone areas, and rain and flood monitoring and forecasting systems in collaboration with local departments.
