3.9.4 Companion modelling for common pool resources

Navigation Arrows Previous NextPreviousNext

The companion modeling approach is a collective learning process that takes place in the interaction between the stakeholders and the models they build together.

Companion modeling for common pool resources crosses ecosystem benefit indicators, economic methods (CORMAS software, http://cormas.cirad.fr/ComMod/) and decision science valuation methods.

The implementation of such processes requires to take into account multiple skills and multiple point of view.

Modeling is used to clarify and formalize the values and to simulate the evolution of the ecosystem studied. Its collective implementation aims to produce a shared representation of the different values expressed by stakeholders. Collective discussion around the simulation results help to make explicit conflicts between the various values defended by different stakeholders.
