Basic alternatives as 'scenarios' in Dutch land development practice

Scenario studies for the rural environment: selected and edited proceedings of the symposium Scenario Studies for the Rural Environment, Wageningen, the Netherlands, 12-15 September 1994: 627-634

Basic alternatives as 'scenarios' in Dutch land development practice

This paper describes the BASALT (Basic Alternatives) method which is used to devise systematically realistic planning alternatives in Dutch land development practice. The main topic is how plans are formulated. The BASALT method works by converting planning requirements concerning uses and interests into variants. Variants are sub-plans for e.g. water management for agriculture or development of nature. The variants are then combined to form basic alternatives.
