In 2017, more than two billion people globally are lacking access to safe water services, with Western Asia experiencing dire water stress levels above 60 percent. China is one of the countries where this development is alarming. While China’s water recourses are barely able to support its population as it is, they are further put under pressure by extreme pollution and industrial and agricultural overuse. Therefore, China is currently implementing the 2015 “Water Pollution Prevention and Control Action Plan” to curb the growing water pollution problem. The Chinese government is planning to spend two trillion Chinese Yuan (330 billion USD) to improve water quality throughout the country.
