In this paper, conceptual framework of ECCEA was optimized and pilot accounting of ECCEA was conducted
on national and regional scale from 2000 to 2014. The results show that: The total amount of ecological conservation and
construction expenditure has been increasing during recently ten years. It was 314.55 billion CNY in 2014 and nearly
28 times to 2000’s; the expenditure types have increased from the original four to eight. But currently there were still
some problems about the ecological conservation and construction expenditure in China: (1) The total expenditure was
still insuffi cient and was only 0.49% of GDP in 2014, which was less than the ecological damage loss in 2014. (2) The
expenditure structure was still need to be optimized, the forest resources conservation expenditure accounted for the biggest
and was 67.3% of the total while other expenditures were relatively low. (3) The regional differences of expenditure
were rather large and the highest province of expenditure was 12 times to the lowest one of expenditure. Finally, some
suggestions were put forward in order to strengthen the ecological conservation and construction expenditure in China.
Key words: ecological conservation and construction; expenditure account; accounting
