BEIJING, May 17 (Xinhua) -- China's southern island province of Hainan targets to establish a green and smart water network as well as a modern water governance system by 2025 to match its Hainan Free Trade Port construction goals, according to the province's recently published 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-2025) on water resource utilization and protection.

To this end, the plan sets out such detailed targets as capping annual water consumption within 5.315 billion cubic meters, and water use per 10,000 yuan of GDP and per 10,000 yuan of industrial added value within national requirements during the five-year period. Also, coefficient of effective utilization of farmland irrigation water will be raised to 0.58 and water supply as well as emergency water supply capacity in urban and rural areas will be further improved.

Meanwhile, water ecology will be further protected with soil and water conservation rate exceeding 95 percent, surface water quality further improved and domestic sewage collection and treatment efficiency further improved during the period.

Hainan will basically establish a smart water network data platform by 2025, with water rights and water price reform making progress and investment and financing mechanism for water infrastructure construction making new breakthroughs, the plan said.
