As the embodiment of human activities, the change of regional industrial structure is an important driving factor of land use change, and also makes the change of surrounding eco-environment. Therefore, research on the change of regional industrial structure and associated effects on eco-environment is, not only the helpful complement of the research of land use change, but also the key content of the research on sustainable development, human-land relationship, and geographical response on global change today. In this paper, on the basis of qualitative analysis of the influence of different industrial development on natural eco-environment, we will construct the influence coefficient of different industries on natural eco-environment, and corresponding influence index of industrial structure on natural eco-environment, so as to evaluate the eco-environmental effect of the change of regional industrial structure. The case study in Lijiang city, Yunnan province showed that, during the past 11 years, there was great change in industrial structure in Lijiang city, which experienced double industrial structure transformation. While the influence index of industrial structure on natural eco-environment was moderate, which declined year by year, indicating that the change of regional industrial structure have exerted an active eco-environmental effect.

Key words: change of industrial structure, eco-environmental effect, Lijiang city, Yunnan province
