Abstract: After stepping into twenty-first century, human being witnesses that, while modern economy is developing rapidly, natural environment is getting worse. Is human being really unable to change this situation? The earth is our shared home, so it is a collective goal to protect the earth and to create a better environment for our living and development.

Under the precondition of the fast development of economy, this project has succeeded in both of surrounding improvement of inhabitation and urban continuous development. Because of its great success and consequent economic, environmental and social benefits, this project has aroused global attentions and won the reputation of “Model Project of Fu-Nan River”.
