Description

China’s South–North Water Transfer Project (SNWTP) has the potential to transfer as much as 44.8 km[superscript 3] year[superscript −1] of water from the Yangtze River basin to the Yellow River

China’s South–North Water Transfer Project (SNWTP) has the potential to transfer as much as 44.8 km[superscript 3] year[superscript −1] of water from the Yangtze River basin to the Yellow River basin. However, the SNWTP has not been assessed from a sustainability perspective. Thus, in this study we evaluated the SNWTP’s economic, social, and environmental impacts by reviewing the English literature published in journals that are part of the Web of Science database. We then synthesized this literature using a Triple Bottom Line framework of sustainability assessment.
