Its Chinese New Year, so here is something about China!

China has a population of more than 1.2 billion, and its land natural resources per capita are lower than the world’s average. Official statistics show that China has a land area of 9.6 million sq km, making it the third-biggest country in the world. However, the land area per capita is only 0.008 sq km, much lower than the world’s average of 0.3 sq km per capita. In recent years China’s average annual amount of freshwater resources has been 2,800 billion cu m, ranking sixth in the world; but the amount of freshwater resources per capita is only one fourth of the world’s average. China is rich in land mineral resources, but the amount per capita is less than half the figure per capita worldwide. A real challenge to achieve Sustainable Development Strategy!
