Abstract or Summary
  • In this work we propose a computer based approach by means of which the decision maker in Bendel State, Nigeria, can best be assisted in the formulation of policies related to land use. In Chapter I we briefly discuss the role of the computer in planning and state the problem. Chapter II contains a description of the regional setting of our study while in Chapter III the present land use practices together with their associated social, ecological and environmental effects are considered. In Chapter IV a review of the existing methods for dealing with economic and developmental problems is presented and their suitability for handling the Bendel State situation considered. Chapter V,which forms the major bulk of this work, begins with the discussion of the notion of a system, a notion on which the approach we propose heavily relies, and a description of the System Development Life-Cycle. It continues with a discussion of the notion of modelling and a brief description of the Model Life-Cycle which, as is pointed out, is similar to the System Life-Cycle. These two ideas of System and Model Life-Cycles are then used to develop an iterative problem investigation process, the Generalized Computer System Simulation Methodology, with a discussion of which the chapter concludes Finally, in Chapter VI the feasibility of this approach is considered.
