The urgent, global issue of sustainable land management (SLM) in Russia is considered based on a review of the state of modern research. However, the concept of sustainable land management and its methodology are at the stage of development. Definitions of the basic terms “object of land management” and “SLM model” have been formulated within the development of a methodology for SLM. In addition, approaches to typology of the land management objects have been formulated; hierarchical land management practices are described based on the concept of land degradation neutrality. Thus, 15 types of land management are divided into four classes: three classes of models characterized by SLM practices and one that involves practices, which cannot be considered sustainable. It is justified that a land degradation neutrality is not always achieved as a result of application of land management practices.
Keywords: sustainable land management, land degradation neutrality, sustainable land management model.
