ABSTRACT

Western China is not only an important ecological conservation area, but also has rich natural resources and environmental conditions. Therefore, the western China must vigorously develop green low carbon economy to realize the win-win of natural ecological environment protection and socio-economic development. At present, the western China has not only great potential in technology progress, industrial upgrading and energy saving and emission reduction, but also has good endowment conditions and comparative advantages in the development of agricultural carbon sequestration, eco-tourism and clean energy development. Therefore, the western region in China should make full use of these advantages to promote low carbon economy development. At the present stage, the western China should actively promote industrial upgrading and structural optimization, comprehensively implement natural ecological protection engineering, reasonably develop and utilize mineral resources, fully utilize renewable clean energy resources, promote eco-tourism, give priority to organic ecological agriculture, and accelerate urbanization and urban ecology-oriented development.
