This case demonstrates the use of participatory research to bring together pastoralists, donors and researchers to build the capacity of the pastoralists to better withstand drought and similar shocks. The case is part of the Pastoral Risk Management (PARIMA) project of the Global Livestock Collaborative Research Support Program (GL-CRSP).

Project management, as a field of practice and aspiring discipline has enjoyed strong professional formation, driven by active associations of practitioners.

Five primary steps in the scenario process are charted: (1) defining project boundaries (2) determining the driving forces (3) analysing the driving forces (4) generating scenarios and (5) scenario transfer to allow visualisation of scenario outputs as a story.

Resource Type: 

This framework presents a structured way to review all the possibilities for understanding and acting on a complex problem. The questions are:

Scoping of complex social and environmental problems can be undertaken using the following seven phase framework.


Phase 1: Analyse the Context

Combines system dynamics group modelling and group explorer strategy making to “facilitate the design of multi-method strategy modelling workshops”. Consists of:

This online toolkit provides descriptions of a range of methods for stakeholder engagement, listed below. As well as providing a general overview, each method is described using the following categories: participants, cost, approximate time expense, strengths, weaknesses and origin. Videos are provided for some methods.

Resource Type: 

This collection of cases illustrates the use of system dynamics in consulting projects in: chemicals, criminal justice, defense and aerospace, economics and finance, education, energy and environment, engineering and construction, health care, production management, multisector planning, public health, technology, transportation, and urban plann

Overview of several high profile system dynamics model-based applications, selected to show what such models look like, how they emerged (often in multidisciplinary interventions), and how they were used successfully to influence strategy, policy, and decision making.
