This study uses a multi-agent model to illustrate the behaviour of economic players in a context of rapidly evolving environmental policy. The area under study is represented by a sector of Réunion island with a high concentration of pig farms (Grand Ilet) in the upland region and extensive sugarcane plantations in the coastal zone. The pollution problems associated with pig rearing are being addressed by the public authorities, in choosing a set of environmental measures suited to the local context. After illustrating the approach and the results that can be obtained using multi-agent systems model, we couple multi-agent simulations and economic cost-benefit analysis. The advantages of the illustrated methods for the implementation of decision-making and negotiation tools are finally discussed.
