Brian Castellani, CECAN Fellow, recently ran a workshop at Warwick University along with Pete Barbrook-Johnson.
They met with Tim Sunderland of Natural England and what Brian describes as a group of great people from DEFRA and Natural England!
The purpose of the workshop was to continue to design the COMPLEX-IT software to make it better for policy evaluation and to help the participants think better about their policy evaluation from a complex systems perspective, including what types of databases and methods would be necessary to do so, such as agent-based modelling, systems mapping and case-based modelling.
It was noted that case based modelling and COMPLEX-IT may be particularly useful in natural capital efforts.
