The paper calculated an ecological footprint of Wusu city in 1990, 1996 and 2003, and analyzed the current status of sustainable development and dynamic change. Results show that the per capita ecological footprint of Wusu is constantly increasing, but the per capita ecological carrying capacity is decreasing. The per capita ecological footprint in this region varied from surplus, deficit to deteriorating in thirteen years. In addition, diversification of ecological footprint in Wusu city, potential of ecological economy system and efficiency in resource utilizing were steadily improved. It can be concluded that ecological economy system in Wusu city is a unsustainable one.
