About the Book :

This study is an attempt to illustrate the approach to providing spatial dimensions to planning at the District level using North Kanara District (Karnataka) as a case study. In the context of planning from the grass roots level it is essential to evaluate the variations in natural environment, demographic and socio-economic attributes of population using human settlements as locations. Likewise, the physical resources and their areal variations have to be evaluated in order to assess the development potential and the manner in which the economy of the District needs to be spatially organized. The District has within it, parts of larger sub-regions of Karnataka the coastal plains and foot hills, the western Ghats (Malnad) and the traditional area (Semi-Malnad). It is against this background and the historical and political process at work that the study provides approach to the formulation of development strategy appropriate to the District. The methodology and the finding would be of use to social scientists, planners and administrators.
