Small-Trade ModelEmilie Lindkvist & Blanca Gonzalez García-Mon
The purpose of this model is to understand the role of trade networks and their interaction with different fish resources, for fish provision. The model is developed based on a multi-methods approach, combining agent-based modeling, network analysis and qualitative data based on a small-scale fisheries study case. The model can be used to investigate both how trade network structures are embedded in a social-ecological context and the trade processes that occur within them, to analyze...
AgentExNanda Wijermans, Maja Schlüter, Caroline Schill & Therese Lindahl
AgentEx aims to advance understanding of group processes for sustainable management of a common pool resource (CPR) in dynamic social-ecological environments. It targets to qualitatively reproduce and explain patterns observed in behavioural CPR laboratory experiments. AgentEx (v1.0) represents an explanation that is characterised by three individual-level factors: individual ecological knowledge, confidence in knowledge and social skills that interact to determine individual and group knowledge as the outcomes of communication/knowledge sharing and knowledge updating.
