Decrease in Quantity and Improvement of Quality (减量提质 jiǎn liàng tí zhì): In line with the new requirements of Ecological Civilization and New Urbanization, some Chinese cities, including Beijing and Shanghai, started to shift the quantitative increase-based urban growth to quality improvement-oriented urban development through city master planning. The resource and environment carrying capability is taken as a rigid constraint to determine the upper limit of the population, and strategies are put forward for reducing the amount of urban-rural construction land and improving the efficiency of land use and the quality of the built environment. A comprehensive control framework, as well as related restrictive indicators, are also established for the long-term urban development.
