Sustainable Development: the Local Know Better

The article is devoted to the analysis of the mechanism of environmental regulation in the Russian Federation from the point of view of observing the interests of the local population. It is shown that the economic basis of environmental conflicts is the distribution of external environmental costs from the degradation of the natural environment, so the internalization of negative externalities is an essential part of the environmental regulation system. However, a significant part of the prerequisites for the emergence of environmental conflicts lies in the field of the prevailing socio-political model of development, that is, outside the system of environmental regulation. The local population should participate in making decisions about the development of its own territory, since it is the most able to ensure long-term sustainable use of the territory’s resources.
