Participatory agent-based modelling for sustainable agriculture

Demonstrates modelling scenarios and strategies for sustainable agriculture in an Austrian region. This involved gathering mental models of stakeholders, developing shared understanding of system dynamics, fostering exchange and learning, and developing and assessing strategies. An agent-based model was at the core, with many inputs developed using participatory methods. Three scenarios were assessed.
