Short summary
In the mid-1990s, the losses caused by ecological environment destruction every year in China accounted for more than 8 % of GDP. When economic prosperity comes with serious environmental damage, the false image of national growth emerges, which will cause distortion to the evaluation of water resources carrying capacity. This paper proposes a quantitative technical route combined with a water resources balance sheet, which is able to fully reflect the sustainable development theory.
