This book will focus on planning at a relatively large scale of space and time. It will focus on rural areas, which are changing so rapidly globally. It is based on the principle that if we have an adequate context to organize information and we bring the appropriate information to the table, the success of planning will be enhanced and the degree of controversy reduced. The context will be that of systems analysis in which the earth is treated as a mechanical model, which acts in predictable ways under the laws and principles of the natural and social sciences. This approach is a way to begin the planning process; it identifies gaps in knowledge and areas of conflict.
