The article analyzes the land fund dynamics of border areas of Russia and Mongolia. These territories are distinguished by a low and medium degree of economic development of agriculture, mining and residential environmental management, which carries the greatest risk of the emergence and strengthening of desertification processes. Therefore, attention was paid to the analysis of residential and agricultural environmental management. An analysis of the structure of the land fund allows us to identify trends in the development of the territory and further predict characteristics of the course of desertification processes. The Russian regions are characterized by increased migration to the border regions and, therefore, an increase in areas of settlements and related land categories with a decrease in reserve lands, Special Protected Natural Areas. In Mongolia, there is also an increase in lands of settlements, but with the preservation and growth of forest and water resources, reserve lands, Special Protected Natural Areas, etc. The similarity of Russian and Mongolian border areas is revealed in the reduction of agricultural land. Changes in the land fund structure allow tracing the relationship between socio-economic processes and changes in various sectors of nature management and their impact on the intensification of desertification.
