The intensive use of natural resources in modern times has led to several eco-geographical problems, the solution of which is possible through the interaction of science and technology. Because the constant growth of the population leads to an increase in socio-economic needs. At the same time, the use of nature becomes more intensive, and as a result, the amount of damage to the environment increases and its area expands. From this point of view, it is very important to study any research area in an eco-geographical direction on a scientific and methodological basis.
In the Lankaran physical-geographical region we studied, the elements of the natural environment have undergone biological, physical and chemical changes as a result of human life and economic activity, and there is a need for nature protection. These include environmental facilities, ie settlements, industrial zones, agricultural areas, roads, recreation facilities, etc. belongs to. These factors cause eco-geographical problems in certain areas and require solutions. From this point of view, the article examines the current eco-geographical situation of Lankaran physical-geographical region and groups the ecologically tense zones of the region. Eco-geographical stress zones are grouped into three categories - areas with low, moderate and high levels of environmental damage, and each zone includes settlements and their surrounding areas. 
As a result of the study of the eco-geographical situation and the grouping of ecologically tense zones, the “Eco-geographical map of Lankaran physical-geographical region” was compiled. The map shows the development of the light industry, food industry, fisheries, agriculture and tourism, which are some of the main objectives.
