dc.description.abstract "The water predicament of the Yellow River, including Hai and Huai, its two water-starved neighbouring basins, has problems on a massive scale. It also has degrees of freedom which are limited in several senses: rural development has to be secured to avoid unwanted urban migration, irrigation water has to be secured to raise the income level of the rural population and avoid social conflicts, and food self-sufficiency on an improved nutritional level has to be secured for the rising population. At the same time, large scale sedimentation has to be avoided, otherwise flood risks to the densely populated neighbouring plains will be exacerbated." en_US
