✏Policies Drain the North China Plain Book Summary : The report examines the relationships between agricultural policies in the North China Plain, the approaches to water management that evolved from them, the quantity of water that was actually used, and the consequent groundwater depletion beneath Luancheng County, Hebei Province, from 1949 to 2000. To systematically address these relationships, we use a comprehensive water-balance approach. Our results indicate that a single, longstanding policy-that of using groundwater to meet the crop-water requirements not supplied by precipitation-is responsible for the steady rate of groundwater decline.

✏Hydrologic Impacts of Water management Policies on the North China Plain Book Summary : Competing demands on limited ground-water resources of the North China Plain have resulted in persistent water shortages. Despite considerable effort to mitigate the problem, ground-water levels continue to decline. The purpose of this research was to quantify and relate to historical policies the changing groundwater balance of rural Luancheng County, located adjacent to Shijiazhuang City, capitol of Hebei Province, on the North China Plain.

✏Irrigation Water Pricing Book Summary : Much hope has been vested in pricing as a means of helping to regulate and rationalize water management, notably in the irrigation sector. The pricing of water has often been applied universally, using general and ideological policies, and not considering regional environmental and economic differences. Almost 15 years after the emphasis laid at the Dublin and Rio conferences on treating water as an economic good, a comprehensive review of how such policies have helped manage water resources an irrigation use is necessary. The case-studies presented here offer a reassessment of current policies by evaluating their objectives and constraints and often demonstrating their failure by not considering the regional context. They will therefore contribute to avoiding costly and misplaced reforms and help design water policies that are based on a deeper understanding of the factors which eventually dictate their effectiveness.
