This submission has open access
Submission Summary
In the context of environmental degradation and resource shortage, the evaluation of urban vulnerability is of great significance to improve the quality of urbanization. As the city is a resource-ecological environment-economy-society coupled system, urban vulnerability index system needs to be researched and analyzed from four following aspects, including resource vulnerability, economic vulnerability, social vulnerability and ecological vulnerability. As a typical representative of a mountainous city, Chongqing has complex terrain conditions and more fragile ecological environment. Therefore, this paper uses principal component analysis and analytic hierarchy process to determine the index system and constructs a vulnerability evaluation model by studying the vulnerability evaluation of Chongqing city, and evaluates the urban vulnerability of 38 districts and counties in Chongqing by a comprehensive index model and GIS analysis from three time sections (2010, 2015, 2020). Further, this study offers a few suggestions to cope with urban vulnerability in Chongqing.
