OECD Territorial Reviews: The Krasnoyarsk Agglomeration, Russian Federation

image of OECD Territorial Reviews: The Krasnoyarsk Agglomeration, Russian Federation

Bringing together the city of Krasnoyarsk and six adjacent smaller cities and rural districts, the Krasnoyarsk Agglomeration is increasingly emerging as the main economic hub of Eastern Siberia. Its relative weight in both population and economic activity continues to grow. This review examines the Agglomeration’s performance and potential, particularly with reference to such critical challenges as internal and external connectivity, human capital formation and innovation. These issues are analysed in the context of Krasnoyarsk’s unusual economic geography, which involves tremendous natural wealth, but also remote location, severe climatic conditions and relatively low density of settlement. Its experience is thus relevant to many remote, resource-rich regions across the globe.



Knitting the Krasnoyarsk Agglomeration together

This chapter focuses on the spatial dimension of governing the Agglomeration. First, it situates the Agglomeration in the larger context of multi-level governance in the Russian Federation. It then explores the potential for deeper integration at the level of the Agglomeration to improve performance in a number of major areas linked in one way or another to spatial form: land use, housing and transport. Finally, it shifts the focus from local transport (internal connectivity) to the Agglomeration’s links to the rest of the world (external connectivity) and explores its potential to develop as a transport and logistics hub.
