Abstract. One of the main characteristics provided in the framework of strategic planning of the socioeconomic development of regions is the quality of life. The growth of profits and the increase in consumption increases the burden on the environment. The purpose of this article is to analyze the ecological, hydrocarbon potential, the quality of life of the population in the subjects of the South of Russia, to assess the prospects of their changes in the strategies of socio-economic development. The authors use statistical, tabular, qualitative factor analysis, ranking. The materials of the article are a database of regions of the South of Russia in terms of the environmental, hydrocarbon footprint, quality of life, generalizing economic indicators. The paper accumulates information on Krasnodar krai, Rostov, Astrakhan, Volgograd regions, the Republics of Adygea and Kalmykia. The ecological and hydrocarbon footprint varies by region in different ways. The authors have made a rating of the best regions. The factors of the obtained changes are determined. It is found that the quality of life is determined by the volume of GRP, GRP per capita, gross fixed capital accumulation, the actual final consumption of households. Qualitative analysis shows how these factors affect the ecological and hydrocarbon footprint. It is necessary to break the link between the growth of production and the deterioration of the environmental situation. This is possible due to the development of “green” technologies. The analysis of strategies of the social and economic development of the regions of the South of Russia shows that at large volumes of GRP and the developed industrial sector, subjects of the Russian Federation form “green economy” in different branches, at low level of development – only in the sphere of renewable energy. The authors conclude that the developed strategies of socio-economic development of territories do not fully contribute to overcoming ecological and economic contradictions. The authors have formulated proposals to reduce them.

Key words: South of Russia, socio-economic development, ecological footprint, hydrocarbon footprint, GRP, quality of life, strategy, green economy.
