In recent years, the phenomenon that global is becoming warmer, natural disasters occur frequently, natural resources and energy are decreasing more and more seriously affects the survival of mankind and the normal production and other activities. In this context, the concepts of "low-carbon economy", "low-carbon city", and "low-carbon technology" come into world attention, and low-carbon economy become the main direction of transformation of the resource-based city gradually. Therefore, studying problems about developmental level evaluation and strategies of low-carbon economy for the resource-based city has become an important research topic of scholars both at home and abroad. Facing the low-carbon economic development model, under the background of fully understanding the research status of the resource-based cities at home and abroad and low-carbon economy, the author sum up some problems which the resource-based cities need facing in sustainable development, and put forward concrete solving countermeasures. In order to guarantee the low-carbon economy developing better, the author found a low-carbon economy evaluation index system which suit for the resource-based city, on the base of following the principle of low-carbon economy evaluation index system setting up and the latest evaluation standard. Then taking Daqing city as an example, the author analyses the status of economic industry development in Daqing city and the obstacles existing in the low-carbon economy development of Daqing. At last, it screens 34 secondary indexes, and applies FAHP and DEA method to evaluation. The model gives full play to the features that FAHP can effectively reduce the index weight of subjectivity and DEA is easy to operate and can adjust to the original inputs, and provides theoretical guidance for resource-based cities develop low-carbon economy. Finally, the author submits specific promoting strategies for the resource-based city develop low-carbon economy, which can offer references for the sustainable development of the resource-based city.
