This proposal, a continuation and extension of work begun at IIASA in 1974, was first discussed at the IIASA Conference on National Settlement Systems and Strategies last December. In its present form, it dates from a weekend of discussion and writing in Ottawa last May, when the authors net Dr. Pendleton of the Ford Foundation and Professor Glickman of the University of Pennsylvania. The primary purpose of this description of the project is the satisfaction of the Ford Foundation's information requirements; since those differ from the requirements of IIASA's national member organizations and of potential collaborators in this study, more fully elaborated versions will be forthcoming in the future.

The proposal was sent to the Ford Foundation in July 1975. I have every hope that it will be funded and will become an integral part of IIASA's future work on human settlements and services, resource and environmental mangement, and integrated regional development.
