“Before governing the country, China must control the floods first”. Water governance has been an extremely important public affairs in China since ancient time. In the past 70 years since 1949, People’s Republic of China has ushered in new progress in constructing modern water engineering projects and made brilliant achievements in water governance. China not only built the world largest water engineering project, but also transformed from traditional to modern water governance model. As a result, continuous improvement in water governance has strongly supported the rapid economic and social development and the enhancement of people's livelihood. China’s percentage of water resource in the world is only 6%, and arable land only 9%, but China has successfully fed about 20% of the world's population. Through hard and arduous efforts and under complicated national conditions, Chinese people led by the Communist Party of China have explored and innovated the water governance system with Chinese characteristics. Water governance is another side of the national governance. The practice of China’s water governance reflects the remarkable advantages of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics, explains the institutional secret of China’s successful governance, and also reflects the bright future of the modernization of China's system and capacity for governance.
