Short summary
This paper analyzed basic principles and existing flaws of water resources value theories and accounting methods, proposed to primarily account water resources depletion cost, water environment degradation cost and ecological water occupation cost from three aspects, i.e. water resources, water environment and water eco-system. It provides a reference for advancing water resources management, realizing scientific and rational allocation of water resources.
