    1. 1. People Model of Shrimp and Paddy Farming in SW Bangladesh Shrimp is more profitable than paddy River water access necessary for shrimp→ likely that farmers near river decide for shrimp Leeching from shrimp area to paddy Build-up may exceed monsoon saltrinse High salinity detrimental to paddy health→ high % of shrimp farms leads to overall saline condition,influencing others to decide for shrimp
    2. 2. Investigating the % Shrimp FarmsFew shrimp farms
    3. 3. Investigating the % Shrimp FarmsMany shrimp farms

    6. 6. Feedback on models (Kenya)Can be used to:find out how to get more fish, e.g. moving to different areas,stopping bad gears, and conflictraise awareness, e.g. illustrating overfishinghelp in BMU training activitiesWe would like to find out:How we can improve it with data from our areaStarting a community project for better fishing dataNeed for computer training and equipment
    7. 7. Summing up Model relationships in shrimp and paddy farming Testing a parameter (part of a policy scenario) Environmental health and peoples wellbeing Prototype models shown during feedback meetings Great deal of interest in agent-based models at different levels andwith types of decision-maker!
