Chinese to English: Speech on Sustainable Development (Extract)
Source text - Chinese 三是加大滇池保护力度，促进水资源的可持续利用。滇池是昆明的“母亲湖”，对调节气候、维护城市生态系统平衡具有决定性的作用。滇池治理的成效，事关现代新昆明建设的成败。为了更加有效地保护和治理滇池，在现代新昆明的规划和建设中，我们统筹考虑滇池治理和生态环境保护与城市发展之间的关系，更加突出了滇池在城市发展中的重要地位，更加注重城市经济社会和环境的全面、协调、可持续发展。一方面，紧紧抓住滇池治理这一关键和核心，下大力气改变滇池水质严重污染的状况，使滇池这颗高原明珠重放光芒，使昆明山水城市的特色得到充分体现。另一方面，积极推进滇池流域的生产力布局和产业结构调整优化，通过昆明城市发展加快滇池治理，使城市发展与滇池治理逐步走上互为支撑、相互促进的良性循环轨道。目前，与滇池保护相关的环湖截污、整治入滇河道、农村面源污染综合治理和环湖生态修复等工程项目正在积极推进；作为今后昆明城市主要饮用水源、设计总库容为4.84亿立方米的掌鸠河引水供水工程明年可实现向城市供水；城市饮用水源区的立法保护工作已正式启动。这一系列注重城市水资源可持续利用的重大措施的稳步实施，为实现现代新昆明城市用水供需平衡和解决滇池生态用水创造了有利条件。
Translation - English Third, strengthen the protection of Dianchi Lake and enhance sustainable utilization of water resources. Dianchi Lake is referred to as the "Mother Lake" of Kunming, and plays a determinant role in conditioning climate and maintaining the balance of urban ecological system. The results of Dianchi Lake management are closely associated with the successful construction of a modern and new Kunming. To protect and manage Dianchi Lake more effectively, we have taken into consideration as a whole the relationship between Dianchi Lake management or ecologic environment protection and city development during planning and construction of a modern and new Kunming, further highlighting the important role of Dianchi Lake in Kunming's city development, and further concentrating on the overall, coordinated and sustainable development of the city¡¯s economy, society and environment. On the one hand, firmly holding Dianchi Lake management as the key and core in its policy, Kunming will make great efforts in improving the seriously polluted water quality of Dianchi Lake, so as to restore the brilliance of the plateau pearl - Dianchi Lake and fully reflect the merits of Kunming as a scenic city. On the other hand, the city will vigorously facilitate reshuffling and optimization of productivity distribution and industrial structure across Dianchi Lake basin, while speeding up the Lake¡¯s management through the Kunming's urban development, leading urban development and lake management to a benign cycle of interaction. At present, Dianchi Lake protection projects, such as peripheral pollution interception, basin river management, comprehensive rural pollution sources management and peripheral ecological rehabilitation, are being carried out aggressively; As the primary drinking water supply for Kunming in the future, the water diversion and supply project at Zhangjiu River, which has a designed total reservoir storage of 484 million cubic meters, can begin to serve the city next year; the legislation process to protect urban drinking water supply areas has been formally initiated. Steady implementation of these important measures, which focus on the sustainable utilization of urban water resources, create favorable conditions for realizing the balance between water supply and demand in modern and new Kunming and solutions to Dianchi Lake ecological water.
Fourth, further improve urban habitat and promote the city¡¯s sustainable development. Cities are the homeland of human beings¡¯. Excellent urban habitat is not only the symbol of a city¡¯s civilization, but also an essential foundation for a city¡¯s sustainable development. We will persistently put people first and integrate the concept of ecological environment into urban planning, construction and administration. Beginning with planning, we will highlight the features of "Spring City" and take the opportunity of establishing a National Garden City, National Clean City and National Model City for Environmental Protection, to build Kunming into the amiable habitat with emerald mountains, beautiful waters, blue sky, green land, colorful flowers and cool tree shades.
