This video describes how a complexity science based toolbox, especially different types of modelling, is used in complex multiple use environments, such as the coastal zones of Australia, to examine different scenarios for sustainable fishing options. The video starts by describing elements of complexity such as operating at scales from minute organisms up to areas […]
The Science and Development Network (SciDev.Net) website provides news and examples about influencing decision making as part of a much broader portfolio of activities. The mission of SciDev.Net is to “help individuals and organisations apply evidence and insights from science and technology to decision-making in order to have a positive impact on equitable and sustainable […]
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 planning. Clients for the projects were government, corporations and non-government organizations. The repository […]
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. Examples include project management, commodity cycles, urban dynamics, and infectious disease policy. Video (30 minutes): Models that Matter: […]
This video describes how transdisciplinary research contributes to sustainability through a case study of five projects in Gothenburg, Sweden. It assesses a common assumption that transdisciplinary research is more able to contribute to societal problem solving than traditional forms of research. This assumption is based on the analytical belief that collaboration between and among social […]
This handbook describes 21 cases organised using the three phases of a transdisciplinary research project: 1) problem structuring; 2) problem investigation; and, 3) bringing results to fruition. Topics are drawn from many countries and cover global and local environmental concerns, migration, new technologies, public health and socio-cultural change.
