Growth without migration: towards a model for integrated regional/rural development planning



Growth without migration: towards a model for integrated regional/rural development planning



Ekistics; Reviews on the Problems and Science of Human Settlements 48(291): 442-446



Examines conventional attitude that mass rural-urban migration is an inevitable accompaniment of economic development. Considering the physical and social problems caused by mass urbanization the question is posed: Is growth possible without migration? The experience of Israel, which absorbed 560,000 immigrants during the 1st 3 years of its existence by creating rural settlements, is drawn upon. The study of these settlements by the Settlement Study Center in Rehovot led to the development of the Rehovot Approach to comprehensive and integrative regional planning. 2 examples of Israeli experience--kibbutz industries and integrated regional development of Lakhish--are described as illustrations of the Rehovot Approach. The construction of a computer model based on this approach which would guide planning processes to reduce rural exodus and preserve traditional, social and cultural patterns is discussed.
