Hydropolitics Flooding in China

China's place in the world. Home to the world's largest population and by extension one of the largest Disaporas. China is bordered by the South China Sea and Pacific Ocean as well as Thailand, Laos, Mynmar, India, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan and Russia as well as parts of Central Asia. Once the home of empires and kingdoms and one of the longest written histories in the world, China lately has surpassed United States as the world's largest economy and has turned the world into a multipower place in the diplomatic scene. Although the West doesn't want to acknowledge this.

To the East of Sudan, the People's Republic of China has also experience deadly floods this month. China has other reoccurring weather patterns such as cyclones, typhoons, monsoons and rarely tsunamis. Nearly each year, China experiences flash flooding that leads to the destruction of property and lives. China has been developing its local and national infrastructure at a rapid pace over the last thirty years and will continue to build new cities from scratch and housing for the 1.3 billion population one of the largest in the world.
