Мета вивчення дисципліни: The purpose of the discipline is to form an understanding of the system of management of the use of natural resources and the management of environmental protection activities at various levels (international, state-wide, local) as the basis for sustainable development of the territory.
Завдання: The study of an educational discipline involves the formation of competencies in students of education: integral competence: INT. The ability to solve specialized tasks and practical problems during professional activities in the field of ecology, environmental protection and balanced nature use and in the learning process, which involves the application of methods of environmental sciences, which are characterized by the complexity and uncertainty of conditions. professional competences: FC 1. Basic knowledge of scientific concepts, theories and methods necessary for understanding the principles and means of protecting the environment with its natural and anthropogenic systems (biosphere, anthroposphere, sociosphere); FC 8. Ability to assess the impact of technogenesis processes on the state of the environment and identify environmental risks associated with production activities; FC 11. The ability to justify the need and develop measures aimed at preserving landscape and biological diversity and forming an ecological network.
Learning outcomes: AiВ 2. Ability to realize the need for lifelong learning in order to deepen the acquired and acquire new professional knowledge. AiВ 3. Ability to be responsible in the work performed and achieve the goal in compliance with the requirements of professional ethics. Program learning outcomes: ЗН 4. Knowledge of Earth sciences (meteorology and climatology, hydrology, soil science, geology with the basics of geomorphology) to study the phenomena and processes occurring in the environment. УМ 1. Ability to use professional knowledge and practical skills in fundamental disciplines in environmental protection processes. УМ 2. Ability to use knowledge about the causes of environmental hazards to justify management decisions. УМ 3. Ability to apply knowledge and understanding for the design, improvement and operation of existing industrial technological schemes for the treatment of flue gases, wastewater. УМ 7.

Summary of the subject: Constructive geography is a direction of complex scientific research, which is designed to provide a synthesis of knowledge obtained by separate branches of natural-geographical and social-geographical sciences in order to effectively solve the problems of territorial planning, rational nature use and management, and harmonization of relations in the "man-nature" system. Considering the wide range of problems of constructive geographical research in modern geography, they are often solved within the framework of such scientific fields as geoecology, ecological geography, applied geography (applied physical geography), engineering geography, nature protection and rational use of natural resources (rational nature management). , territorial planning and design (district planning), sozology of landscapes. Specialists who are able to comprehensively analyze the geographical space, possess methods of assessing the natural resource potential, methods of organizing monitoring systems, scientific and methodological principles of expertise and forecasting of nature management projects, laws of optimization of the functioning of natural and technical geosystems, can work in state bodies of executive power, design institutes and scientific laboratories, water management departments and departments, land management and forest management organizations, environmental improvement and protection departments, ecological inspections, nature management departments and departments, etc.
