On the basis of hierarchical classification, districts situated in the areas of protected lands and their nearest neighborhood of Lower Silesian Voivodeship were organized in the following way: beginning with the best and ending with the worst. They were organized on the basis of a synthetic measure of development and sustainable development’s indicators. The result of the investigation allowed setting up some conclusions and demands: hierarchical classification of the districts situated in the area of natural valuable areas shows, that these are not always the best districts in implementing the sustainable development concepts in comparison with the districts which are not included into the researched areas; sustainable development’s indicators for the districts should diagnose socio-economic-environmental condition; one should create a homogeneous set if indicators for natural valuable areas in a district order, which will be used for an assessment of the sustainable development concepts accomplishment; a synthetic development measure will serve for a continuous analysis of dynamics’ changes in the accomplishment of sustainable development.
