The grant was executed by stages. Each stage assumes a certain completeness, with some definite results reached. A detailed description of the research at two first stages was given in previous reports. Therefore, the focus of this report is on the final stage. It includes two parts: 1) a general theoretic part and 2) an applied part. The first part presents a general idea of the social-geographical system (SGS), based on the spatial-temporary paradigm and a comprehensive integrated approach. A conclusion is made that SGS is a consequence of spatial-temporal determination of the people life activity and its continual extension and discrete organization. The man, as a biological and social individual and a rational creature, is the basic source of the formation of SGS. The SGS evolves in association with the natural and social evironments; whose interaction effects each of the human life aspects. At the same time, the human socium itself affects the environment. The objective of the state policy, having both federal and regional level, is to provide a balance in the interaction processes. The regional level is a major one in the present research. It was reviewed in detail in the author's 1998 papers. Both theor and applied aspects were laid down in the utmost details in the 1998 textbook "Basic of regional policy", published jointly with dgs, prof. Gladkiy Yu.N.). The textbook provides a sistematical treatment of the basic regional policy as a sistem of objectives, tasks and practical measures of the state agencies in securing the political, economical, social and environmental progress of regions.
