Evaluation of the implementation of water pollution prevention and control plans in China : the case of Huai River Basin (Chinese)

The Huai River Basin (HRB), as one of the key polluted basins, has witnessed very modest improvement through ten years of water pollution prevention and control efforts. After making a comprehensive view of the Water Pollution Prevention and Control Plan (WPPCPs) for HRB, a hierarchical structure can be found, with a national plan, detailed plans in four provinces along the river, and plans at municipal and even county level. The purpose of the research is to help the World Bank analytical and advisory (AAA) "addressing China water scarcity" to identifying the challenges and priority areas China is facing in implementing water pollution control plans in river basins. It took HRB as a case. Through data collection from different official information sources and in accordance with the targets set by the ninth and tenth five-year WPPCPs, the research objectively evaluated the implementation of the WPPCPs, identified problems of planning per se, and analyzed institutional barriers which affected the implementation of the plans. Suggestions on the preparation and implementation of WPPCPs were made based on the evaluation and analytical results.
