In this article series, we will systematically study the integrated modelfor the harmonic development of population, resource and environment. This isa fundamental work for the study of social-economic sustainable developmnt.In this paper,we at first propose three categories for the harmonic developm-ent of population, resource and environment: generalized resource, competi-tion-sharing units and competition-sharing norms. On the basis of these con-cepts, sustainable development index Is and overlapping index Io of social--economic processes and ecological processes are presented, the approachfor determining the proper scale of population and feasible behaviour man-ners are discussed. All of this provide a fundamental research line and fra-mework for the harmonic developmenl of population, resource and environ-ment.
