NADUWA3E Model and its Application to Strict Water Resources Management in China
WRS colloquium by Dr Yangwen Jia
To cope with the issues of water shortage and water pollution, which are aggravated by the population increase and rapid economic development, the Chinese government decided to implement the Strictest Water Resources Management system in the whole country in recent years. The key point of the system is to draw and hold the Three Red Lines (i.e. the red line of total water use, the red line of water use efficiency and the red line of pollutants into water bodies) for water resources management in all river basins and administrative regions. This kind of management work highly needs the scientific and technical supports, especially numerical models on water and environment. Taking the Haihe River Basin of China (320000 km2) as an example, this talk will introduce some research results of a project in the National Key Fundamental Development Program (973) of China to address the above issue. NADUWA3E (natural-artificial dualistic water cycle model including economy-environment-ecology simulation) and its application will be introduced as an emphasis in the talk.
Short CV of Dr. Yangwen Jia
Dr. Yangwen Jia is a professor from the Department of Water Resources, China Institute of Water Resources & Hydropower Research (IWHR). He graduated from Tsinghua University of China in 1986, and got his PhD in the University of Tokyo, Japan in 1997. He has published over 150 scientific papers in journals and conference proceedings. As he has been involved in many projects on hydrologic analysis, he gained rich experience at home and abroad in this field. Great contributions were made to the development of the physical-based distributed watershed model (WEP). He also did a lot of work in water resources assessment and planning in various types of river basins with varied physical conditions. In recent years, he is mainly engaged in the studies of social-hydrology, eco-hydrology and integrated water resources and environment management. He now serves as an associate editor of JHER, an executive committee member of IAHR-APD and a technical committee member of GWP China.
