The economic and social causes of the Black Sea region rural areas depopulation are specified. The list of factors that complicate the environmental dimension provision of the agro-food sector sustainability in the Black Sea region has been specified. It has been established that there is a direct link between the agricultural production stability and the level of the agrarian sector multiculturalism.

Among the factors that adversely affect the social sustainability of the agro-food sector development are the consumer income low level, the insufficient level of social rural areas infrastructure development of the region. Among the factors that adversely affect the environmental sustainability of the agro-food sector, the most notable are the land cultivation high level, the reduction of the area under perennial stands, the unsatisfactory dynamics of forest reproduction, and the critically low level of organic fertilizer application.
