We consider the role of data and remote sensing methods for the estimation of uncertainty balance of greenhouse gases and carbon emissions in problems of the climate change estimation on the regional level. It is shown that the use of remote sensing data in the uncertainty estimation procedure (in the case of ecological, socio-ecological and socio-economical processes) allows one to optimize the system management of ecological, social and economical risks both on the state and regional level.
