Abstract: Yellow River is an important source of water for northwest and north China, and an important strategic guarantee for the sustainable economic and social development of the Yellow River basin and its related regions. The Yellow River water allocation scheme (Scheme 1987 in short) was approved in 1987 by the State Council, which was the first river water allocation scheme in China. It allocates a total volume of 58 billion m<sup>3<sup/> of water to the 11 provinces along the river and its ecosystem. However, with the deepening impact of climate change and human activities, the Yellow River water resource and its development situations have some changes and the water resource of the drainage basin faces new situations, so it is urgent to carry out the optimization and adjustment study of Scheme 1987 under the new situation. The background and promulgation process of Scheme 1987 was reviewed comprehensively, and its implementation effect for 30 years was analyzed from two periods before and after unified dispatching. The new situation of the development of the Yellow River basin in the future was analyzed, and the work to be carried out to optimize and adjust the Scheme 1987 was prospected.
