The article describes the existing climate trends for Western Siberia and Altai Krai; based on two global climate models, forecasts until 2030 were made. The dynamics of arable and forest-covered areas in Altai Krai under conditions of climate drying was analyzed using the results of remote sensing data processing and official statistics. The directions of situation development and measures to achieve land degradation neutrality including the optimization of environmental management, organization and reorganization of specially protected natural areas are considered.
Keywords: temperature and precipitation of the warm period, types of land cover, land categories, indicators of land degradation neutrality, arable lands, forests, specially protected natural areas.
