Conceptions of development are constantly changing and reliance upon a "world model" is inappropriate, especially with rapidly increasing population and urban migration. Urban migration is seen as a threat to orderly development and the ways in which the authorities respond to it are shown to be inadequate. The author divides national development policy into three components: agricultural and rural development, growth pole development and dispersal and city development. He shows the need for policies for these components, as well as policies to control the way in which they are linked to one another. Urban development is the principal component and objectives for urban development planning are proposed. (TRRL)
