- How to achieve regional development with less carbon is the focus of attention of the scientific community. In this paper, with the basic spatial unit of 301 prefecture-level administrative region in China, the relatively refined system of quantitative indicators was established. The 2010 low carbon development (LCD) level is divided into four primary types and eight subtypes based on different combinations of indicators. Study shows that, China's development is primarily high-carbon and relatively high-carbon types, and low-carbon and relatively low-carbon types are distributed below the "Hu line". The global differentiation characteristics of China’s LCD are important for policy-making of low carbon development of different types of regions.
