Abstract:

Using data for Chongqing Municipality, China, we conducted a coupling analysis of key indexes to accomplish the following objectives. We aimed to identify a coupling mechanism for the bearing capacity of the ecological environment (BCEE) and the quality of new urbanization based on an examination of the degree of their coupling in Chongqing during the period 2000-2012. We further aimed to evaluate the level of regional coupling and to determine the stage of urbanization at which an optimal outcome could be achieved to ensure sustainable urbanization within the region. Applying an analytic hierarchy process (AHP), we assessed the main indicators of BCEE and the quality of new urbanization in Chongqing. Accordingly, we constructed a model of ecological environment coupling coordination for analyzing the degree of regional coupling between the ecological environment and urbanization quality for evaluating the BCEE of Chongqing's cities and towns in 2000-2012. We obtained the following results for the study period. First, the overall degree of regional coupling of the quality of new urbanization and the BCEE was between 0.967 and 1.000, implying an advanced stage of coupling. Second, the coupling degree ranged between 0.884 and 1.000 in all of the districts and counties of Chongqing, implying a further advanced stage of coupling with a distinct spatial pattern of "one circle and two wings." Third, the coupling degree for all districts and counties matched that of the overall degree of regional coupling, barring obvious spatial variation, especially in relation to BCEE indicators. All of the districts and counties were classified into four types according to the degree of coupling between new urbanization quality and the BCEE. The findings indicate that rapid urbanization has led to increased ecological pressure within the Chongqing metropolitan area because of a concentration of the population within the central city. Moreover, with the fast pace of development in central city districts, their BCEE differs from that of other districts and counties. This will create a pattern of primary urbanization that can lead to an unsustainable situation in the near future. Local governments should, therefore, modify present urban development patterns accordingly. Optimization of resources utilization as well as adjustments in industrial distribution and industrial upgrading are recommended as effective measures that can disperse the population and reduce the pressure exerted by urbanization on the ecological environment.
