Description

Can policy makers ‘see’ the outcomes of their decisions even before implementing them? Researchers at the ICRISAT and the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) are trying to make it happen with the click of a mouse. A small group of scientists are working to support policy makers in ways not attempted before in Indian agriculture, through an approach called System Dynamics Modelling (SDM). The computer-based models of agricultural value chains built through this approach can simulate scenarios in complex socio-economic systems.
