Abstract
Based on the theory of emissions trading, this paper constructs a panel data model based on Kuznets curve (EKC) and ecological compensation standard calculation model. Taking data of seven cities from Songhua River basin such as Jilin, Changchun, Songyuan, Qiqihar, Harbin, Qitaihe, Jiamusi, the paper also calculates their ecological compensation rates in 2004 and 2015 based on the trading of emission rights, and does longitudinal analysis of the ecological compensation standards of Changchun and Harbin. The results show that cities with transboundary basins should follow the principle of "who pollutes who pays", and cities that overuse the right to emit pollutants should pay more ecological compensation, while the economically viable cities will receive corresponding ecological compensation, which will help clear cross-border river basin water pollution control responsibilities, and improve pollution control efficiency.
