The article assesses the resource and socio-economic potential of the mountainous part of the Siberian Federal District - one of the largest federal districts of Russia with unique natural resources, difficult natural living conditions and sufficiently developed economic conditions. The methodology developed by the scientists of the Dubna University was adopted as a method for the calculations. This technique differs in that, on a single methodological basis, using physically measurable quantities and expressed in one unit of measurement, to assess the resource potential of the region. This approach is universal for all regions of the world. The scenarios for the development of the subjects of the Siberian Federal District in the economic, social and environmental spheres have been established. The classification of regions is carried out in relation to the extensive and innovative development of the economy and society. For the transition of the subjects of the Siberian Federal District to the rails of sustainable innovative development, it is necessary to increase the efficiency of production in accordance with the demographic, social and environmental policy, as well as to reduce the consumption of natural energy resources.
