Resource and environment carrying capacity is an important criterion for measuring whether people and nature are in harmony. In order to accurately assess the resource and environment carrying capacity of the region, this paper takes the four subsystems of resources, environment, society and economy as the carrying subject, considers the cost-benefit results of resource cross-regional transactions, and calculates the maximum population size that can be carried by the region. The indicator system method is used to assess the carrying capacity of the four subsystems, and input-output analysis and cost-benefit analysis are used to assess the likelihood of cross-regional trading of resources. Finally, taking Wuqing District of Tianjin, China as an example, the resource and environment carrying capacity of the region is evaluated.
