Regional Development

The gap between individual Russian regions in key development indicators has reached 20- to 30-fold, which corresponds to the numerous differences among the diverse members of the United Nations. In such conditions drafting measures and proposals to balance out the development of Russian regions and preparing strategic documents at the regional level are some of the most important areas of activity for federal agencies and the Russian expert community. The IEF takes active part in drafting strategy and programs for the social and economic development of Russian regions, and conducts various regional and interregional research, as well. The IEF is active in implementing new results of scientific research in regional development, particularly in creating a classification system of Russian regions that will be very helpful in evaluating the current condition of and potential development for a constituent member of the Russian Federation.
