The modern processes of desertification of the Caspian Sea territory have resulted in a complex influence on both external (climate, sea transgression, human activity) and internal factors (modern tectonic movement, rock structure and the level of their stability towards destruction and transportation, geomorphological and hydrogeological conditions, the structure of regional biocomponents), most effective of which is economic human activity. Irrational mastering of the semi-desert and desert regions of the Kazakhstanian zone of the Caspian Sea, along with the global and regional climatic changes, have led to significant and sometimes irreversible degradation of the many environmental components.The modern transgression of the Caspian Sea essentially affected the intensity of the desertification process, and also aggravated the ecological and social economical problems of the region.The data are made into a map of the modern natural-anthropogenic processes of the Kazakhstanian coasts of the Caspian Sea at a scale 1:500 000.Analysis of the area development and degree of intensity of modern natural-anthropogenic processes permits a regional classification on the degree of destabilization in ecosystems under coastal management in view of modern transgression by the sea.
