Calculation and Analysis of Ecological Footprint on Cities of the Poyang Lake Ecological Economic Zone
Based on statistical yearbook data in Nanchang city, this paper applies a calculation mode of ecological footprint to conduct calculation and analysis on the ecological footprint, as well as bearing capacity of Nanchang city-the core city of Poyang Lake Ecological Economic Zone from the year 2005 to 2009. According to some research, the average ecological footprint of Nanchang city in recent five years is 1.974879hm2/cap, the average ecological bearing capacity is 0.224917hm2/cap, and the average ecological deficit is 1.749962hm2/cap.Regional eco-environment is in the condition of unsustainable development. This paper also makes an analysis on the intensity of ecological footprint and ecological efficiency in Nanchang city. By taking these as a foundation, this paper puts forward strategies and suggestion to reduce ecological deficit of Poyang Lake Ecological Economic Zone and achieve sustainable development in this zone.
