Traditionally, making use of water resources always involves requirements to face many limitations, which usually lead to water shortage, and those problems are more obviously prominent in developing countries than in the developed countries, for example, China. As a result, the research on regional water resources shortage problems becomes necessary.
This thesis is mainly focused on the case in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Region to attempt to show the process about how to find the main issues, the problems, and the related and recommended solutions for water shortage, including the 1) analysis of the issues that lead to the current existing water shortage problems in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Region by using a principal components analysis (PCA) model, 2)evaluation and analysis of the related problems led by those issues ,and 3) proposes the recommended solutions and the related possible responses for those issues.
