  • “people participate in joint analysis, which leads to action plans and the creation or strengthening of local institutions. This participation in general calls for the use of interdisciplinary methodologies that seek multiple perspectives and use systematic and structured learning processes. These groups have control over local decisions, so that people have an interest in maintaining structures or practices” .
  • The role of interactive agent-based simulation modeling platforms for tradeoff analysis in participatory approaches for integrated water resources management

    1. 1. The role of interactive agent-based simulation modeling platforms for tradeoff analysis in participatory approaches for integrated water resources management Le Page C., Kizito F., Venot J.P., Daré W.
    2. 2. Quick overview of the project • One Research question: How to breach the gap between the rhetoric and the practices of IWRM in Ghana and Burkina Faso? • One overall objective : Support on-going IWRM policy initiatives through multilevel participatory processes (ComMod approach)
    3. 3. Principles of the ComMod approach • Model as an intermediary tool – Model built with the different stakeholders – Transparency of process – Adaptiveness of the process Analysis of the issue Conception of a model Participatory simulation Second issue Tuning of the model First issue Analysis of the issue Modification of a model Participatory simulation
    4. 4. 1-Definition of the common issue • First workshop : each day with participants of one level : communities, district and regional level  How to limit siltation – erosion - flooding?
    5. 5. • Example : The board of Bawkudo (Zongoyiri) Plain wood : Day 1, Oct 2011, Stylized version, Day 2 Oct 2011, Boardgame Day 1, june 2012 2-Development of the RPG Bawkudo
    6. 6. The RPG Bawkudo : Roles of participants • Farmers: – Size of the household, needs, number of activities is constrained – type of activities is opened but the results are constrained by land cover where activities take place (abacus) • Decision makers : – define regulation to meet district or regional needs.

    22. 22. The outcome of participation? Pretty grid 7 scales of participation (Pretty, 1995) passive participation participation by providing information Participation through consultation Participation for material incentives Functional participation Interactive participation Self-mobilization - people participate in joint analysis, which leads to action plans and the creation or strengthening of local institutions. - Use of interdisciplinary methodologies that seek multiple perspectives and use systematic and structured learning processes. - But these groups have control over local decisions, so that people have an interest in maintaining structures or practices => design a “smaller” management structure
