The article deals with some negative impacts on environment which regional development may cause. Sustainable development is based on rational utilization of natural sources which are evaluated by category of potential. In article were chosen negative environmental impacts. These were included into two groups corresponding with main aims of regional development: Reduction of disparities between regions and increasing of regional resistance. According to the identification of chosen environmental problems with relation to the regional development were selected cardinal tools for sustainable development. Nowadays, in many cases, these tools are already sophisticated enough and integrated into a systematic care of the landscape but as the problem still remains their consistent application. In some cases, it is necessary to increase their strength and effectiveness or to update their impact in accordance with practical experience. (English) [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
