About Book

Book Description
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 very 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.
