Abstract

A concept of zoning that addresses Natural and Man-made Disaster Security (NMDS) is proposed. NMDS’s features and factors used in regional divisions are discussed. The system of factors and the level of their influence are described. The nature, principles, criteria, and indicators for appropriate zoning are determined. Ukraine’s territory is described from the standpoint of NMDS considering spatial differences and the level of population security, economic facilities, and natural ecosystems in respect to negative impacts of natural and technogenic character. Features and dynamics of NMDS of Ukraine from the regional division perspective and natural and technogenic hazards to the regions are shown. Prospects of social geography theory and methodology in the development of the foundations of NMDS are provided. A socio-geographical mechanism of NMDS for the regions is presented. Goals and key directions of its implementation are defined. A system of methods and implementation measures of socio-geographical mechanism of NMDS is proposed. The organizational and management structure of NMDS of Ukraine at different hierarchical territorial levels, particularly at the regional level, is identified. The system of organization and management of environmental monitoring and detection of human, financial, and material reserves is necessary in prevention and minimization of negative impacts of natural and manmade disasters.
