Policy Option Simulation in Socio-Ecological Systems

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Social-Ecological Systems (SESs) i.e. systems linking human behavior and environmental dynamics, are characterized as complex, dynamic and heterogeneous systems. A comprehensive policy simulation in SESs has to consider all these properties. In this paper, we present a conceptual analysis on key aspects of policy simulation in SESs and introduce a combined use of Fuzzy Cognitive Mapping (FCM) and Agent-Based Modeling (ABM) methods as an approach to cover those aspects. We illustrate the applicability of this combined method for policy simulation in the case of a farming community facing water scarcity.
