For doing this study utilized qualitative approach with its tools for gathering information such as participatory observation, discussions, maps, documents and pictures. Main locations of study were four provinces that changing land use patternes in natural resources and rural areas toward establishing vacation homes touristy resturans and hotels, recrational centers etc. in them are relatively more stronger and visible in Iran, namely Tehran, Golestan, Isfahan and south Khorasan provinces. In this article discussing various aspects that caused of changing land use patternes in natural resources and rural areas in Iran. In the end present final and exigency acquired model on  the ways of confronting to these land use changes for accessing to sustainable development (SD) goals and criteria in Iran.
