During the land reform, which has been going on in Ukraine since 1991, the state form of land ownership has been demonopolized. The lands of almost 12,000 farms have been reformed, and 6.77 million peasants have acquired land rights (shares), the vast majority of which are registered as separate plots of land. Today, land consolidation should be considered as a set of land management measures to regulate the structure of land rights in order to create more favorable conditions for farming, increase productivity, reduce production costs, create appropriate infrastructure, improve the agricultural structure. The current land legislation of Ukraine does not contain a sufficiently effective mechanism for ensuring land consolidation and needs to be improved. The purpose of the study is to identify ways to improve the mechanism of legal regulation of land consolidation in Ukraine and integrated land management, which will provide restructuring and improvement of spatial conditions of agriculture, achieving more efficient multifunctional use of rural areas, environmental protection and infrastructure development for further harmonization of legislation.
