Chunhong Xia, Yan Li, and Ruiliang Li

Abstract—Along with the process of globalization, how to coordinate the development of urbanization and ecological environment has become an important issue for the current academic circles. Kunming is located in the southwestern part of China and belongs to the plateau lakeside city and the ecological environment is fragile. Taking the data of urbanization and ecological construction in Kunming from 2007 to 2016 as a sample, this paper designs the Kunming urbanization and ecological environment evaluation index system based on the situation of Kunming City, and adopts the entropy weight method and the linear weighting method to evaluate the urbanization of Kunming. The research results show that the urbanization process of Kunming City climbed up, indicating that Kunming's urban construction achievements were remarkable from 2007 to 2016. However, the ecological environment of Kunming is not optimistic, showing a fluctuating trend. The coordination degree between the two systems has experienced three stages of antagonism, integration and coordination. How to protect the ecological environments has become a key issue that must be faced and solved in the current urban development of Kunming.

Index Terms—Kunming city, urbanization, ecological environment, coordination.
