Abstract: The Jiulong River basin is situated in the south subtropical zone of China with favorable climate conditions, fertile land and rich products. It is a hinterland of economic development of southern Fujian. As the policy of special-zone and open-zone is carried out in recent years, the economy of the cities and villages develops very fast. But it is faceing serious challenges of soil and water loss, water pollution, and geomorphological calamity at present, because it has neglected the management and protection of the envir3nment at the same time. On the basis of investigation, we put forward three ideas about the management of the Jiulong River and the development direction, countermeasures, main ways and measures, for the comprehensive exploitation and utilization of the economy of the Jiulong River basin. All these have important meaning to the management and development of the Jiulong River basin.

Key words: Basin management, comprehensive development, Jiulong River basin
