Evaluating participatory modeling: Developing a framework for cross-case analysis

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Participatory modeling is increasingly recognized

    as an effective way to assist collective decision-making

    processes in the domain of natural resource management.

    This article introduces a framework for evaluating projects

    that have adopted a participatory modeling approach. This

    evaluation framework—known as the ‘‘Protocol of Canberra’’—

    was developed through a collaboration between

    French and Australian researchers engaged in participatory

    modeling and evaluation research. The framework seeks to

    assess the extent to which different participatory modeling

    initiatives not only modify perceptions among and interactions

    between participants, but also contribute to collective

    decision-making. The article discusses the development of

    the framework and it’s application to three case-studies, two

    from Australia and one from the Pacific Island of the

    Republic of Kiribati. The article concludes with some

    comments for future use of the framework in a range of

    participatory modeling contexts.
