Interrelationships between the socio-economic development, ecological environment and water resources in China are demonstrated in terms of system theory. We used a comprehensive evaluation model to calculate the comprehensive evaluation index of water resources carrying capacity. It is found that the spatial distribution of the population and economy does not match with that of the water resources. In connection with excessive anthropogenic loads in such regions as the North China Plain, Northwestern China, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, and Gansu Province, there is a severe shortage of water resources.
