Mediated modelling

Mediated modelling (MM) works Adaptive Management
with stakeholder groups to combine the best of ‘participatory and consensus based approaches to decision-making’ with the best of ‘dynamic systems modelling’.

Led by Associate Professor van den Belt the research scope ensures the research models and management models closely
align with end-user needs.

Mediated modelling involves up to seven workshops with 10-20 participants to determine key drivers of changes in land use, demographics, economics, social and health considerations and natural environment.

The aim is to capture the unique characteristics of urban systems in Auckland and Wellington from decision makers' visionary perspectives.

Key influencing determinants include: networks (transport, energy, water, waste), competing land uses and multi-uses.

Between 2012-2015 MM will build adaptive capacity by: (1) Evaluating the MM process by comparing perceptions with base-line. (2) Informing Objectives two and three and being informed by Objectives two and three.
