Agricultural development policies influence patterns of internal migration and population distribution directly and indirectly. The reverse is also true. Hence, a nation's agricultural development policy should be consistent with its population distribution policy. Accordingly, the policy field to be investigated must be extended to include side effects and secondary consequences in these interdependent spheres.

Methodological research and a number of case studies are envisaged to deal with this problem in the Food and Agriculture Program, in the Human Settlements and Services Area, and in the Regional Development Task. This paper is among the first of such studies and should be regarded as a methodological study to determine whether a computerized regional model can be constructed to improve the planning of rural-urban development, employment, and migration policy.
