Integrated assessment of farming systems: categorising diversity, simulating trade-offs, communicating results. Walter Rossing

  1. 1. Integrated assessment of farming systems Categorising Diversity, Simulating Trade-offs, Communicating Results (part 1; part 2 during the Field Day)
  2. 2. Program 1.30 pm – 3.00 pm, Plaza 4 Introduction: Walter Rossing (5’) Categorising farm diversity: Santiago Lopez- Ridaura (15’) Simulating trade-offs: Daniel Rodriguez (15’) Communicating results for innovation: Santiago Dogliotti (15’) Where to from here: discussion (40’) Rapporteur Argyris Kanellopoulos Workshop Integrated Assessment of Farming Systems Brisbane 27 September 2011
  3. 3. Workshop objectives To discuss and explore  Farm typologies to categorize farms and their performance (‘Categorizing farm diversity’)  Models that mimic farms to generate new actionable information (‘Simulating trade-offs’)  Ways in which model results are used to contribute to co-innovation (‘Communicating results for innovation’) Workshop Integrated Assessment of Farming Systems Brisbane 27 September 2011
  4. 4. Categorizing Diversity Van der Ploeg et at. 2009, JEM 1969 1969-1981 Are typologies based on salient farm characteristics? Expert knowledge and participatory rankings versus formal multivariate methods? Use of typologies in scaling up and scaling out? Workshop Integrated Assessment of Farming Systems Brisbane 27 September 2011
  5. 5. Simulating Trade-offsCalculated solutions Scenario studies Optimization Pareto based explorationin white Objective 2Area of possiblesolutions Objective 1 Results and purposes: scenarios, trade-offs, blueprints? System specification and saliency? Sense and nonsense of validation? Workshop Integrated Assessment of Farming Systems Brisbane 27 September 2011
  6. 6. Communicating Results Communicating results or co-construction? Do different audiences require different methods? Consequences for the way we design projects? Workshop Integrated Assessment of Farming Systems Brisbane 27 September 2011
  7. 7. Propositions to kick you off into the discussion: Farm models are a boundary object: they help us to understand farmer behaviour and they help farmers to see consequences of possible actions In decision making we all are satisficers rather than optimisers: so why all this emphasis on optimization? The purpose determines not only the model but also the social process that a project should develop Workshop Integrated Assessment of Farming Systems Brisbane 27 September 2011
