The aim of this research is to analyze the demographic situation of the river Klyazma basin in the post-Soviet period and throughout the history of development and settlement of the region; identification of the major centres of vectors differentiation of population development in the examined basin; analysis of socio-economic, natural and environmental factors affecting the population distribution within the basin and demographic processes that are typical for the region. We must take into account that the population demographics of the region is largely dependent on diversity and state of resources of the area and their involvement into the economic sphere, however, it is obvious that the state of the economy is also a key factor in ensuring the sustainability of ecosystems and geo-systems of the river basin. The river Klyazma basin area has a long historical path of development and transformation of natural systems into natural and man-made landscape complexes. There is a need for new intensive measures to enhance demographic potential of the territory and to stabilize the ecological and economic situation.
