Spatial Dimensions of Socio-Economic Development: A Case Study of Himachal Pradesh

A K Tiwari (Author)
Synopsis The book "Spatial Dimensions of Socio-Economic Development in Himachal Pradesh" evaluates the progress made in the state of Himachal Pradesh during the three decades, 1981 to 2001. This is an in-depth analysis of four major, components of development viz., agriculture, industry, economic infrastructure and social sector in the 12 districts of the state. It is a factorial analysis based on 42 indicators and helps to identify the lagging districts and the lagging sectors. Based on this evaluation, plan formulation can be made for the different physiographic districts of the State based on their resource potentials, levels of development, and the objectives of socio-economic equity and regional balance. Strategies have been suggested under a decentralized multilevel planning process which emphasizes on spatial organization and corporate management. Agricultural and industrial development strategies focus attention on regional potentialities and maximization of production. These strategies would pave the way for a more balanced regional development of Himachal Pradesh, if and when properly implemented. It is hoped that the book will be of direct interest and use of academics, development planners and policy makers.
