In this research, 34 indexes have been selected to build the regional development sub-system and the eco-environment sub-system for quantitative evaluation, which are closely related to the level of regional development and eco-environment. Accordingly, the regional development-eco-environment index system and synergisticity model of the economic belt on the northern slope of the Tianshan Mountains have been built, with which synthesized evaluation can be done to analyze the coordination degree between regional development and eco-environment and the overall development level. The results show that the level of regional development and the condition of eco-environment in different cities are quite different. What’s more, the coordination level between regional development and eco-environment in different areas are different. Based on the coordination degree, combined with coordinated development degree and the evaluation results of the sub-systems, the 17 cities on the northern slope of the Tianshan Mountains have be divided into three groups: (1) regional development and eco-environment synchronous coordinate region, including Shihezi, Miquan, Fukang, Kuytun, Changji and Manas; (2) regional development and eco-environment approachable coordinated region, including Urumqi, Karamay, Hutubi, Bole, Qitai and Mori; and (3) ecological dominated region, including Wenquan, Jinghe, Usu, Shawan and Jimsar. Finally, corresponding sustainable development strategys for different regions have been put forward.
