Sustainable development of territories is a dynamically developing process of transition to a new, high-quality level of environmental management, aimed at ensuring environmentally balanced development. The territory of the Chechen Republic is subject to erosion processes, in its parts erosion processes provoke the active development of desertification processes. The erosion zoning of the territory should be taken as the basis for the further development of erosion control measures and the prospective development of agriculture. Agricultural production in the republic is mainly concentrated in five erosion areas, where only about 80 percent of all farm lands are intensively used.
