Abstract


The coordination of urbanization and resources and environment is one of the key issues to promote regional social and economic development. This paper took Lanzhou-Xining urban agglomeration as the study area, constructed the evaluation index of urbanization and resource environmental carrying capacity first, and then used entropy method and the coordination degree model to measure the coordination of urbanization and resource environmental carrying capacity from 2005 to 2017. Results indicate that the overall index of urbanization and resource environmental carrying capacity of Lanzhou-Xining urban agglomeration shows an upward trend, and there are obvious spatial differences, especially between Lanzhou and Xining and the surrounding counties. The coordination degree of urbanization and resource environmental carrying capacity is between [0.5, 0.6), most of the counties are in a state of reluctance coordination, and the spatial distribution law of the degree is high in the east and low in the west. And the regional differences are gradually shrinking. There is a significant positive correlation between urbanization and capacity. The coordination status of Lanzhou and Xining provincial cities is relatively good, and the urbanization level is lower.
