The registration is open to participate in PoliRural third Webinar. It will be dedicated to System Dynamic Modelling for enhanced rural planning.
The first System Dynamic Model (SDM) was invented decades ago when the internet was still in its infancy. We have come a long way since then in terms of a tremendous increase in computing power, the availability of data, and ease of access to sophisticated tools and communication platforms. So, it is time to make SDM tools and the explanatory power of the SDM approach more widely available to those involved in policy and regional development.
This is precisely what PoliRural has been doing for the past three years. Our SDM tool is based on a general rural model that contains 8 interconnected modules with over 300 parameters. This general model has been customised to 11 pilot regions, based on discussions with each pilot leadership team. With this tool, rural stakeholders can examine how trends may play out locally under the influence of different drivers of change. They can correct unwanted trends or achieve desired ones by tweaking policy interventions until an optimal mix is reached. This webinar will explain in more detail how the SDM tool was built, how it works, and how it is being used by stakeholders in PoliRural regions to improve rural planning. The event will feature an interactive session to allow participants to ask questions and/or respond to any of the points mentioned in the presentations.
The Webinar will be on 13 June July, 15:00 CET.
