COURSE INFORMATION

Objectives and content

Purpose

The overall purpose of the course is to provide students, government officials, civil society organizations, and other actors involved with development planning with a basic understanding of:

- Modeling and simulation as a vehicle in integrated development planning
- How the fundamental mechanisms that drive development are represented in T21
- The basic dynamics underlying various development issues and their structural origin
- The scope and applicability of models such as T21
- Methods of analyzing the dynamics of such models produced by simulation (scenario analysis)
- Methods for the development and assessment of national strategies, and domain specific policies

Content

In order to achieve such an objective, participants are involved in the development of a scaled down version of T21 for a virtual country (Zambaqui), and in experimenting with that model. The fundamental understanding gained through the process is scalable and applicable to an actual T21 country application.
