Survey research techniques in spatial and economic planning in an Arab context

Date of publication: June 15, 1987


Author: Nicos Rossides


This paper presents the broad data requirements and the concomitant research tools needed for spatial and economic planning in the context of an Arab metropolis. It then stresses the need for creating a programme of research which continually updates the information base in accordance with the new conception of planning as a continuous process as opposed to a static blueprint. Finally, the paper examines the necessity for adjusting research methods and definitions (in procedural as well as substantive terms) so as to reflect the cultural and environmental context of the project area.
