Abstract: Hexi region is one of the development poles in the process of implementing the great development strategies of western China It is also one of the regions possessing most energetic and greatest potential in both today and future socio economic development in Gansu Province. According to AHP Model supported by entropy technology, the indicators’ weights of the sustainable development indicator system in Hexi region are worked out According to Multiple Hierarchies & Targets Fuzzy Comprehensive Measurement Model, the sustainable economic development capacity, the sustainable eco environmental development capacity and the sustainable social development capacity in Hexi region are all calculated, then the whole sustainable development capacity is worked out and the regional differentiation regularity of the sustainable development is summed up It is considered that the difference of the sustainable development capacity in each county in Hexi region is great while the regional differentiation of the sustainable development capacity is regular The change regularity of the sustainable development capacity goes as follows: it is higher in the upstreams while lower in the mid and down streams, higher in the industrial and mining area while lower in the farming area, higher in the pastoral area while lower in the farming area, higher in the urban area while lower in the farming area, and higher in the minority area while lower in the Han nationality area.

Key words: ecological construction, sustainable development capacity, comprehensive measurement, regional differentiation regularity, Hexi region
