According to the results of the research conducted on the current state of the natural resource sphere, as well as in determining the priorities and organizational and economic mechanisms for its preservation, the heterogeneity of regional development is established according to relevant indicators. For the first time, using innovative methodology, the value of the natural wealth of the country is determined. Indications and structure of the organizational, economic and institutional mechanisms of the integrated economic assessment of the natural wealth of territories in the process of balancing the natural resources use and effective management of sustainable development of the state are revealed. The use of public-private partnership in the field of nature use is described, and the basic implementational principles of this model have been represented at the regional and local levels. This requires the development of special, rather than unified, approaches to building up the socio-economic potential of individual territories. In this context, an assessment of the resource potential of the natural wealth of Ukraine is carried out. It includes land, forest, water and mineral resources, as well as ecosystem services. The level of provision of regions with the main groups of natural resources is determined and the degree of their economic use is assessed. The priority directions for increasing the value of available territorial resources, their use in financial turnover are proposed and justified. The necessity of organizing an appropriate management system, which would provide financial instruments for resource management and, on the other hand, would guarantee their effective passage through an adequate financial infrastructure and at the same time expand the possibilities for enhancing the process of their reproduction is shown.

Keywords: natural resources, capitalization, institutionalization, land, water and forest resources, ecosystem services, environmental security, sustainable development, organizational and financial mechanisms.
