The need to improve the housing conditions of the population and to replace the obsolete and often emergency housing stock justifies the relevance of developing renovation programs. Many Russian cities still have a large number of obsolete residential properties, such as the so-called "Khrushchev" - mass housing built in the 1950s-60s with small-size apartments. In order to replace outdated mass housing in Russia, a renovation program was launched in Moscow in 2017, which caused much controversy and revealed a number of difficulties in its implementation. In December 2020, Federal Law No. 494 was adopted, which launched a large-scale residential real estate renovation project in Russia, aimed at improving the quality of life, improving the territory, and providing the population with decent conditions for comfortable living. However, it should be noted that there is still no normatively approved concept of renovation. The authors have considered various approaches to its definition. The need to identify the world's best practices of renovation made this study relevant. The goal of the research is to find ways to improve the Russian program of comprehensive development of territories, giving the regions the opportunity to independently regulate the features of renovation. A comparative analysis of residential renovation programs in countries with a high level of the Human Development Index from different continents has been used to identify the most effective practices. The information for the analysis was obtained from official sources on the Internet. The main differences in renovation programs in different countries are the ways of financing them, the procedure of renovation, the participants in the renovation process. As a result of the study, directions for improving Russia's comprehensive territorial development program, based on the principles of environmental and social character, which will accelerate the process of housing renovation in Russia from the perspective of sustainable development, were proposed. Further research will focus on assessing the economic and social effect of renovation programs, the degree of impact of the measures on the housing market, identifying the factors that stimulate and inhibit the achievement of the result.
