China position paper
While China encompasses almost 20% of the world’s population, the country contains only 7% of the world’s fresh water, leaving it with much less annual fresh water available per capita than most other countries. In addition to growing population, pollution further limits the amount of water available for use. At least one-third of China’s lakes and rivers are unfit for human use, and 73% of the watersheds that supply water to China’s 30 fast-growing cities face medium to high pollution levels.
