Full article 

The purpose of this article is to develop methodological tools for diagnosing the adaptation potential of the region to any situation based on the calculation of the aggregate index of adaptation potential, which more objectively characterizes the abilities and capabilities of the population, as well as the resources of enterprises and their use at the mini, meso and macro levels of economic development. The subject of the research is a set of relations (socio-demographic, economic, environmental, political, natural-physiological, etc.) that arise in the process of forming and using the adaptive potential in order to ensure the sustainable development of the subsidized region. The article examines the problems of developing the region's adaptive potential to the challenges of the time based on the methodology and official statistics. The review of the state of knowledge of the mechanisms of adaptation of the population, which reflect the behavior of people to changes in domestic and foreign sources. The results of the analysis show that most of the definitions are various modifications of traditional approaches of the theories of psychology, sociology, and philosophy. They are too specific, have a particular character, and need theoretical justification. The author highlights the most important essential features and conditions of population adaptation mechanisms that characterize the level and degree of people's adaptation to the challenges of time. On this theoretical basis, the concept of adaptation potential of the region is clarified as the ability (potency) of population organisms, enterprise resources and territories, their specific capabilities to change (adapt) to any situation. Three States of adaptation potential have been developed: equilibrium, stable, and stable; four levels of adaptation: micro, mini, meso, and macro; four models of population adaptation mechanisms: natural-physiological, socio-demographic, financial-economic, and security. Diagnostics of tools of mechanisms of adaptation of the population of the Kurgan region using the aggregated index of adaptive potential affecting the improvement of the quality of life of the population was carried out. The main conclusions of the article may serve as a methodological basis for future socio-economic research, be used as a statistical basis for developing sound management solutions for sustainable regional development and for assessing the degree of adaptation of the population to the challenges of time.
