Amur Region of Russia—Natural Resources, Population and Economy

Part of the International Perspectives in Geography book series (IPG, volume 5)


We present a complex assessment of the natural resources, population, and economy of the Russian Amur region, addressing the availability of certain resources and analyzing the spatial-branch structure of the economy. Correlations of individual components of natural resource capacity, population, and economic activity within the framework of the Amur transboundary territory are evaluated. This territory is a comprehensive geographic structure consisting of interacting frontier territories, and combines certain natural resources, infrastructure, settlements, and business activities within the boundaries of a major geosystem. Our approach allows the most comprehensive evaluation of the integration potential of the Amur River Basin. It determines the most effective directions for socioeconomic development of the territory, taking into account the interests of all actors in cross-border relations.
