Abstract:

To manage the country, we must first control the waters, is an ancient Chinese saying that is more true today than ever. This program documents farmers' hardships-droughts that leave Shanxi Province bone-dry and floods that inundate the lands bordering the Yangtze River-and discusses the exacerbating effects of deforestation and urban growth. Also, potential remedies are showcased, including new dams, increased water conservation, sustainable agricultural practices, improved planting methods, genetic modification of crops, and the monumental South to North Water Transfer Project.
