The article is devoted to the main patterns and trends in the evolution of the theory of sustainable development, which require constant attention in order to improve process management in the field of development. The stages of evolution of ideas about the interaction between man and nature have been identified with the help of the analysis of the first attempts at understanding the possible ways of human development made by philosophers and economists by the 1970s.: 1) utopian idea of "ideal" state system built on the principles of justice, contributing to stable social development; 2) the idea of social organization that defines the path of human development; 3) awareness of the human impact on the environment and of the need for interaction between society, nature and man. The decisive role in forming the UN and the evolution of the concept of sustainable development has been determined. In terms of periodization of the evolutionary process of the world community understanding of the necessity of interaction of components of sustainable development (economic, social and environmental) and the adoption of United Nations documents to address issues in this area, the stages of evolution theory of sustainable development have been determined: 1) understanding the relationship between economic and social factors of development (1945 - 1970 years); 2) awareness of the need for sustainable development in its three components: economic, social and environmental (1971 - 1991); 3) development and implementation of a specific action plan on sustainable development (1992 - present). Taking into account the specified stages of formation and evolution of the theory of sustainable development is necessary to cover basic theoretical positions and to develop the measures to improve the management of the development process.
