Abstract:

As a carrier for the realization of green development goals, green technological innovation is indispensable, and it plays an important role in the ecological conservation and high-quality development of the Yellow River Basin (YB Conservation and Development). It is meaningful to enrich the theoretical research of green technology innovation and realize its role in the implementation of the YB Conservation and Development. Based on the definition of green technology innovation, this study examined the theoretical basis and practical significance of green technology innovation and its economic, social, and ecological values. Then, combined with the new requirements of the ecological conservation and high-quality development of the Yellow River Basin, the value and significance of green technology innovation in the realization of the YB Conservation and Development were identified, which include promoting green economic development, ensuring water security, and facilitating ecological civilization construction. Finally, the status quo of science and technology innovation in the Yellow River Basin was briefly analyzed from the aspects of science and technology innovation foundation, science and technology innovation investment, and green technology innovation achievements. The ways to realize the value of green technology innovation in the YB Conservation and Development were put forward, which include improving the level of green technology innovation, stimulating the driving force of innovation subjects, forming the strength of green technology innovation, promoting the ecological transformation of science and technology, and protecting the rights and interests of the stakeholders. The study is expected to help improve the theoretical research of green technology innovation and contribute to the realization of the YB Conservation and Development.
