Transformation is the fundamental way to realize the development of resource-based cities, and it is a fundamental measure to promote the optimization and upgrading of the industrial structure of resource-based cities, improve the quality of human life, and enhance the overall competitiveness of cities.  However, on the whole, the current transformation of resource-based cities in China is still at a relatively low level. To effectively change this situation, we should start from the transformation concept, transformation planning and people's livelihood transformation, explore the innovation momentum for the development of resource-based cities, optimize the social environment for the transformation of resource-based cities, and promote the new development momentum of resource-based cities. To realize the healthy and sustainable development of resource-based cities.
