China Facts: dis-allocation of resources


Four-fifths of the country's water is in the south, where half the population lives. But in the north, 11 provinces have less than 1,000 cubic metres per person per year, which is the internationally accepted measure of water stress. Eight have only half that amount. The arid ones include four of China's five biggest farming provinces. They produce 45% of the country's GDP and generate half of its power*)
