Description

We review several papers that have afforded insights into determinants of positive outcomes (e.g. the adoption of tools, improved learning and/or collaboration) from modelling projects. From a subsequent internet search in the environmental domain we identified 33 such factors that are then invoked in a transferable survey-based method to facilitate structured reflections by model developers on 15 projects.

From a subsequent internet search in the environmental domain we identified 33 such factors that are then invoked in a transferable survey-based method to facilitate structured reflections by model developers on 15 projects.
dc.description.sponsorshipThe Australian Government funded the Willunga and Namoi integrated modelling projects through the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training (NCGRT) (SR0800001), the Great Lakes and Darwin CAPER projects through the Coastal Catchment Initiative and Caring for Country, respectively, and the Tasmanian Water Quality DSS as part of the Landscape Logic Commonwealth Environmental Research Facility. The CLAM projects were funded by the NSW DIPNR (Phase 1) and the Northern Rivers CMA (Phase 2). The development of WAdss and the Namoi integrated model were both co-funded by the Cotton Research and Development Corporation. EXCLAIM was co-funded by Central West CMA and the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. NSW OEH also funded the development of the IBIS DSS. The Avon-Richardson CATCHMODS work was funded by the Victorian Department of Primary Industries. The NCCARF project was funded by the Australian Government (through the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency and the National Water Commission), the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility, ACTEW Water and the Australian Capital Territory Government.
