Resource Inventories and Government Planning.
Resource inventories are an important part of the data base to be handled in the planning process, both for theoretical analysis and design and for effective implementation. The classes of resources which must be investigated as an essential basis for modern planning include: (1) natural resources, (2) human resources, (3) physical capital and (4) other such as "know-how." With computers, this data base can be organized to serve for long (over 10 years), medium (3-10 years) and short (1-3 years) term planning. At the same time it can serve regional, sectorial and global planning. This organization of the data base is not only the most economical way of getting a return on the investment in data collection, but also the only way to ascertain that the end results of the many processes to which it must be subject are compatible with each other.
