Sergey Kirillov, Sergey Nikonorov, Alla Pakina

Abstract

The current strategies of socio-economic development of the regions located within the Baikal Natural Territory (BNT) are often based on economic priorities as a driver and the material basis for social and environmental goals achievements. A major challenge for the regional development is the balance between Lake Baikal preservation and improving the quality of life. The results of a comparative analysis of the factors of economic development and its pressure on environment of the region were analyzed in the study. The strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and risks of sustainable development of the region were identified and compared. A key role of preserving Lake Baikal as a factor of environmental stability, self-identification of the local population and the basis of economic development of the region, as well as the importance of regulating nature management taking into account the interests of the local population, is justified. Conclusions about the value of BNT for residents of adjacent territories based on the data of social surveys are drawn, and priorities for the strategy for sustainable development of the region are formulated.
