Urbanization in Venezuela. An International Urbanization Survey Report to the Ford Foundation.
Robin, John P.; Terzo, Frederick C.
This study investigates the effects that the abundance of resources in this country has had on the urban development of the country, upon its pattern of population distribution, and upon the conscious effort of the Venezuelan government to reshape its population pattern by the planning of new urban centers and by the opening of previously undeveloped areas to settlement and industrialization. Included in this study are the following: (1) regional development policy in Venezuela; (2) urban planning in Ciudad Guayana; (3) a study of Caracas; (4) other urban centers; (5) FUNDACOMUN; (6) the international agencies in Venezuela; and, (7) resources and people.
