Developing Kavir national park is especially crucial in all ecological, economic and political dimensions. This national park is one of the largest national parks in Iran. Sustainable development of Kavir national park requires great precision, due to its ecologic nature as a desert, presence of specific ecosystems, rare and scarce animals. Its development must be performed based on a precise understanding of the present situation, pilot planning and continual environmental management. The present article seeks to identify environmental situation, evaluate strength and capacity of the land and its ecosystems and propose pilot plans based on the environmental capacities, relative advantages and susceptibilities and disorganizations. Regarding the necessity of producing functional output, economic and social dimensions were concisely considered in the planning process. Evaluating the capacity of Kavir national park indicates that tourism land use has a larger capacity for development. Furthermore, it should consider preservation. With valuable plant and animal resources, and other exceptional and miscellaneous features, this park is a cultural and national heritage. Implementing the results of this study requires a development plan and environment management system. An outline of this plan is provided in the conclusion and suggestion section along with other necessary solutions and arrangements. However with the assistance of authorities, applying strategies and results of the plan provide the necessary situation for compiling and settling environment management system. Though, settling such a system has not yet been accomplished and does not seem to be accessible in near future. But it seems completely accessible in Kavir national park, due to its nature as a desert and presence of biosphere reserve and ecosystem trend. This is in fact a relative opportunity and chance for Kavir national park.
