Urban river management is a critical factor in an urban planning blueprint. However, such management includes various influences from political, financial and environmental aspects. This article tries to illustrate a solution through a case study of Chu River in Wuhan. Through the framework of a Public Private Partnership (PPP), the Wuhan government and Wanda Group establish a partnership that manages the Chu River collaboratively and achieves a sustainable win-win development outcome. By analyzing the achievements and mistakes of this case, we hope to present some experiences of urban river management that can be applied in similar cases.
