IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Economic developing of downstream basin of Jinshajiang River, southwest China was restricted by its undeveloped
transportation even though rich in natural resources. But a going program of cascade hydropower development and
channel improvement will change this situation and improve utilization of water resource, the program is to construct four
cascade reservoirs, Wudongde, Baihetan, Xiluodu and Xiangjiaba on this channel from 2006 to 2020 for supply electric to
east, first batch of turbines in Xiangjiaba started in 2012 and all the turbines were completed in 2013, and whole project of
Xiluodu will be completed in 2015. For efficient use of water resource and to expand economic impact of hydraulic
projects, in this paper, a combined shipping-ground transport system (CSGTS) was built with integration of channel and
existing ground transportation network, forced by water resource integrated regulation and under backgrounds with
different developing progress. Based on the CSGTS, this paper analyzed transportation economic benefits and
corresponding regional economic growth drive by running of cascade water control projects in different stage respectively,
and proposed appropriate shipping development programs based on predictions of several scenarios of economic growth.
The analysis gave a dynamic prediction to regional transportation benefits relates with cascade reservoirs developing until
2050. The results show that construction and running of reservoirs can play important role in regional transportation
economic of downstream basin of Jinshajiang River, and their effect influenced by scheduling schemes and increasing
with the cascade building, after all cascades completion and steady running they will make notable gain for regional
