The Carrying Capacity Potential of Natural Resources and Environment (CCPNRE) measures how far the economic development and human activities in a region will go given its resource abundance, ecological conservation, environmental pressure and climate change. This chapter uses the 2010 data to calculate the CCPNRE of 38 large and medium sized cities in two aspects, i.e., Resource Abundance and Ecological Conservation, and Environmental Pressure and Climate Change.
