Due to the influence of the coronavirus infection, the issues of regional governance and territorial planning have been included in the urgent agenda of territorial development for two years in a row. Within the framework of this issue, a number of challenges of territorial administration are already being investigated. One of them is maintaining the achieved level of economic development and replenishing problematic aspects due to the spread of the coronavirus infection, which seriously affected all economic processes in 2020. The article reveals the management structure of Sverdlovsk region (Russia) and analyses the main socio-economic indicators of the region’s development. The results of the analysis contribute to identifying the urgent problem of regional governance and territorial planning of Sverdlovsk region, i.e. the deepening inter-territorial inequality caused by an unfavourable epidemiological situation. The authors propose management solutions aimed at improving regional governance and territorial planning of Sverdlovsk region in the context of the identified problem.
Key words: regional governance / territorial planning / effects of coronavirus / Sverdlovsk region / percolation clusters
