The article provides a scientific and theoretical analysis of the legislation of the USSR, Ukrainian legislation. Particular attention is paid to establishing features in the legal regulation of seizure, utilization, destruction and disposal of unusable or prohibited pesticides and agrochemicals and containers from them. The authors conclude that today, given the need to improve the environment, more efforts are needed at the state level to utilize pesticides accumulated during the Soviet era, primarily to approve the state program with clear measures for its implementation and sources of funding. Today, regional state administrations have the opportunity without the intervention of the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine to solve problems with obsolete pesticides and agrochemicals, as well as to determine where it is most profitable to dispose of these substances. Thus, to date, the process of reducing unusable pesticides has been launched. It aims to improve the ecological situation in the country, help reduce the negative impact on people's lives and health, and allow agriculture to develop.

It is established that hydraulic reclamation of lands contributes to increasing soil fertility, increasing productivity and sustainability of agriculture, creating a guaranteed food fund of the state. However, in recent years, the effectiveness of hydraulic land reclamation is declining, due to a number of reasons of objective and subjective nature: insufficient logistics and shortcomings in the operation of hydraulic structures, deterioration of ecological and reclamation of agricultural land, lack of interest and responsibility land users. These factors include incomplete use of scientific developments, insufficient information support, imperfect and outdated legal framework. Given the great importance of hydraulic land reclamation for the development of agriculture in the country, these relations require proper legal regulation. It is concluded that the problems of combating desertification, resource and food security of the state in years with adverse weather conditions, water supply of agriculture cannot be solved only by organizing land reclamation, because this problem is complex. In order to achieve the goals of the Irrigation and Drainage Strategy in Ukraine for the period up to 2030, it is necessary to ensure effective interaction of legal, organizational, economic and financial mechanisms of irrigation and drainage restoration in Ukraine within the framework of the identified priority areas.

The article is devoted to the analysis of the current state of legal protection of labor protection when performing work with pesticides, as well as the formulation on its basis of conclusions and proposals aimed at improving the current legislation in this area. It is established that the process of updating labor legislation is currently underway in Ukraine. In particular, through the adoption of regulations governing the rules of labor protection when working with certain types of chemicals (for example, ammonium nitrate). As a result of the study of current legislation in the field of labor protection when working with pesticides, it was concluded that the basic documents (State Sanitary Rules «Transportation, storage and use of pesticides in the national economy» and State Sanitary Rules and Norms «Permissible doses, concentrations, quantities and levels of pesticides in agricultural raw materials, foodstuffs, air of the working area, atmospheric air, water of reservoirs, soil») are not able to regulate properly appropriate relations due to the obsolescence of their provisions. The main shortcomings of State Sanitary Rules are determined: references in its content to already invalid regulations on labor protection, inconsistency with modern developments in the field of hygiene and toxicology of pesticides; unreasonably detailed regulation, which results in an excessive burden on business entities and leads to formalism in the implementation of the provisions of this document by employers; incorrect «rigid» regulation of the choice of personal protective equipment for work with pesticides. The directions of improvement of the legislation in the field of labor protection at performance of works with pesticides are defined. Among them: introduction of a risk-oriented approach to the organization of labor protection, including in the field of agriculture; borrowing positive international experience in the field of awareness of stakeholders on the hygienic regulation of pesticide use, the necessary safety measures for work with the use of such substances.

The goals of sustainable development, outlined in the final document of the UN Summit «Transforming our world: the 2030 agenda for sustainable development», continue to be the main model of development for all countries. Sustainable development is formed and provided by various determinants, among which legal values are not the last. They provide legal identification of objects recognized as benchmarking guidelines for sustainable development, and form the value and legal orientations of entities which activities are aimed at performing these tasks. The lack of a common system of legal values leads to the deformation of the legal consciousness of the population, the dominance of nihilistic trends, makes it impossible to achieve sustainability and stability in society. Therefore, the existence of a single value-legal paradigm is a consolidating factor of Ukrainian society, forms a positive attitude of the subjects to the political and legal life of the country, promotes their legal socialization and the development of a proper legal position. This allows to achieve social justice, build the foundations of inclusive development, ensure the rule of law, eradicate corruption and restore trust in the state and its institutions, strengthen social cohesion, ensure the interaction of public authorities with the public and self-organize the activities of citizens. Among the legal values that contribute to the achievement of sustainable development goals and form the foundation of legal culture, a special place is occupied by human, justice, freedom, responsibility, equality, patriotism, religious tolerance, etc. Keywords: life choice, legal culture, legal position, legal values, value and legal guidelines, sustainable development, value and legal attitudes
