Let us look at the change of energy sources composition. China is forecast to experience a major transition between 2011 and 2025 and also 2035. 3. Total energy consumption is increasing though coal consumption is slowing down, which means other energy sources are increasing. 8, the increased volume of oil and gas consumption is considerable. The consumption of oil will be almost twice as much in the period from 2011 to 2035. It seems to be expected that motorization will continue to advance, and demand for transportation energy will increase.

These equations are to be combined with the equations of water balance. In the case of maximizing social fairness and biodiversity, V is read as fairness or biodiversity instead of value. In minimizing social loss and social conflict, Min V is used instead of Max V. In such calculations, each layer, or presentation for each element, is assigned a weight. , water resources management, water quality management, or coastal zone management). 7 Example: Case Study of the Yellow River An outline is provided below; details are available elsewhere (Kusuda 2009).

The Asian monsoon zone includes subsystems, such as the South Asian monsoon, which affects the Indian subcontinent and surrounding regions, and the East Asian monsoon, which affects southern China, Korea, and parts of Japan. Since the monsoon zone has both rainy and dry seasons, the annual availability of water depends on the capacity of reservoirs. 5 Floods As mentioned above, climate change will mean that floods and flash floods increase in magnitude and frequency. Single typhoons in Southern Asia have killed hundreds of thousands of people in Bangladesh through flooding of low-lying lands.
