PDF Decision Support Systems for Sustainable Development. a Resource Book of Methods and Applications

Book description

In the last years of the 20th century, much work has been done in formulating and clarifying the concept of sustainable development and related theoretical and research issues. Now the challenge has shifted to designing and stimulating processes of effective planning and decision-making, at all levels of human activity, in such a way as to achieve local and global sustainable development. Information technology can help a great deal in achieving sustainable development by providing well-designed and useful tools for decision makers. One such tool is the decision support system, or DSS.; This book explores the area of DSS in the context of sustainable development. As DSS is a relatively new technique, especially in the developing world, this book will serve as a reference text, primarily for managers, government officials, and information professionals in developing countries. It covers the concept of sustainable development, defines DSS and how it can be used in the planning and management of sustainable development, and examines the state of the art in DSS use. Other interested readers will include students, teachers, and analysts in information sciences; DSS designers, developers, and implementors; and international development agencies.
