This double-volume paintings specializes in socio-demographics and using such information to aid strategic source administration and making plans tasks. Papers transcend factors of tools, procedure and conventional purposes to discover new intersections within the dynamic dating among the usage and administration of assets, and concrete development.

International authors discover a number of reviews, features of improvement and decision-making impacts from throughout Asia and Southeast Asia, in addition to recounting examples from the USA and Africa. Papers propound ideas and strategies utilized in geographical study corresponding to help vector machines, socio-economic correlates and commute behaviour analysis.

In this quantity the individuals learn state-of-the-art theories explaining variety and dynamics in city improvement. issues lined comprise human vulnerability to risks, area and concrete challenging, evaluate and assessment of neighborhood city structures and constructions and concrete changes due to structural switch, fiscal improvement and underdevelopment. the importance of those themes lie within the velocity and quantity of switch as is occurring in geography reflecting endured improvement inside of tested fields of inquiry and the advent of considerably new techniques over the past decade.

Readers are invited to think about the dynamics of spatial enlargement of city components and monetary improvement, and to discover concept

ual dialogue of the ideas in and demanding situations on urbanization methods, city areas themselves and either source administration and environmental management.

Together, the 2 volumes give a contribution to the interdisciplinary literature on nearby assets and concrete improvement via collating fresh learn with geography at its center. students of city geography, human geography, urbanism and sustainable improvement might be really attracted to this book.

Example text

This immensely stimulating volume is essential reading for those concerned with the resource management process as it operates in both developed and developing countries. It elaborates the concepts of renewable and nonrenewable resources, ecology, and sustainable development and emphasizes approaches to resources management. It also demonstrates the use of Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing techniques in inventory and appraisal of natural resources, to improve the quality of decision making as well as in monitoring and evaluation of public policy.

N. Dubey Memorial Lecture addressed the theme of the causes and consequences of land degradation in India. In particular, he focused upon the spatial and temporal variations of agricultural land and land–man ratio, spatial pattern of land degradation, efforts of reclamation and reforms of land development and management, challenges facing land development, and how effective has been public intervention in mitigating land degradation. He posits that the land–man ratio varies in accordance with agrarian and social environments.
