Big action in China?

RD sent this very important news:
the Chinese government announced that it will invest four trillion renminbi (US$600 billion) over the next ten years to protect and improve access to water. The policy was spelt out in this year's No 1 Document — the central government's first policy document of the year, setting the top priorities
The commentary at the link identifies a number of problems with this plan (everything from bureaucratic secrecy and coordination to vague funding sources), but this announcement is a step in the right direction. It's hard to ignore a No. 1 document.
