Appropriate management measures are required for the areas involved in climate protection. According to these requirements, the Regional Carbon Emissions Requirements Analysis System (RCERAS) was developed to provide data support and policy analysis for the implementation of regional carbon emission reduction policies. This article briefly shows the economic dynamics model of the regional demand for carbon emissions, as well as the development and design of the GIS-based RCERAS. With RCERAS, future carbon emissions demand of China's provinces and autonomous regions can be calculated easily. The results of energy carbon emissions can be queried, stored and displayed. With the help of GIS, the users can get the pictures of different regions and compare them directly, as well as export the image. In this article the carbon emissions of Jiangsu Province and Shandong Province are compared. Shandong’s carbon emissions are much higher than Jiangsu’s carbon emissions both from the point of the amounts and per capita. Different scenario analysis are made to provide decision support to local governments to implement carbon emission reduction measures, including energy structure regulation, industry structure adjustment and the mix of both. In this article, Tianjin is taken as an example, the result shows the effects of different reduction measures. International-oriented multi-regional synthesis of carbon emissions demand can also be calculated by implementing the system, which can provide more information and strive for more initiative for our government to participate in the climate negotiations. In the study, we take high developing countries as a whole and estimate their future energy consumptions and CO2 emissions. The results show that peak year of their energy consumption and carbon emissions would be in 2029.

Key words: carbon emissions, carbon emissions per capita, system design
