Huai River Basin-PIF
China’s Huai River Basin involves four provinces, i.e. Shandong, Jiangsu, Anhui and Henan. The major development issue in the Huai River Basin is the imbalance between social, economic development and environment protection. With rapid social and economic development, many rivers in the Huai River Basin have become increasingly polluted and more nutrients and pollutants are discharged into the Bohai Sea and Yellow Sea and contaminating these international waters. Shandong Province, with the longest coastlines of the Bohai Sea and the Yellow Sea within the Huai River Basin, is contributing more nutrients and pollutants to these seas than any of the other three provinces.
