In this course, you will learn how to use the Spatial Multi-Criteria Evaluation method to understand the functional quality of the territory of a country..This quality is assessed in terms of the objectives or policy statements of a policy, such as a National Urbanization Policy or an Industrialization Policy or other policies. Such objectives and policy statements tell what society wants to achieve in the territory.
The reason we want to understand this quality of the territory is to make plans for the territory on the one hand based on the strengths of the territory, on the other hand recognizing the weaknesses of the territory. In addition, we want to monitor where policy is successful or fails in order to learn and improve.
The reason we want to understand this structure is to make strategic plans for the territory on the one hand based on the functional strengths of the territory, on the other hand recognizing the functional weaknesses/gaps of the territory.
