Companion modelling: A method of adaptive and participatory research

Barreteau O., Bousquet F., Etienne M., Souchère V., D'Aquino P.. 2014. In : Etienne, Michel (ed.). Companion modelling: A participatory approach supporting sustainable development. Dordrecht : Springer, p. 13-40.

The principles laid down in the ComMod Charter and presented in the general introduction relate to a stance or attitude towards how a specific issue and specific field are addressed by taking into account the various types of knowledge and perceptions already present and the use of certain tools. These principles suggest a framing for the teams committed to them, but the adaptation capacity in organizing the implementation of companion modelling in a given case study is in practice left to the commodian. This chapter aims to detail the diversity involved in implementing a ComMod process and the common points that emerge from it. The objective is to describe in order to understand better, with no normative intention. (Résumé d'auteur)
