Abstract (English):
The problems of sustainable development of single-industry towns are of a great importance for Russian cities situated in Siberia, where such settlements has been a major part of modern urbanism since the Soviet period of rapid industrialization. This topic has been given very little attention in scientific literature, so it is quite important to study the sustainability of single-industry towns using different techniques of assessment and policy-making to achieve the public interest goals. The analysis of current social, economic and ecological status of Siberian monotowns has showed that the problem of sustainability poses a real challenge there. The paper features the general approaches to assess the sustainability of Russian one-industry towns. It has been shown that this problem might be solved by expanding of recently developed approaches to assess the sustainability of Russian regions.
