THE firma PROJECT:  THE firma PROJECT The Firma Project has been supported by the European Union’s Framework 5 Programme for Research and Development and by the European Commission as part of its Key Action on Sustainable Management and Quality of Water programme (contract EVK1-CT1999-00016) FIRMA Initial Objectives:  FIRMA Initial Objectives MAIN OBJECTIVE: To improve water resource planning through the use of multi-agent models that integrate physical, hydrological, cognitive, social and economic aspects of water resource management SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES: 1. Promote co-operation between water resource decision makers and experts in water resource management and in agent-based social simulation. 2. Analyse hydrosocial issues of waste water treatment, water scarcity and integrated catchment planning in selected regions and assemble the data required for agent-based modelling. 3. Develop agent-based models for application to issues of water treatment, scarcity and planning. 4. Carry out participatory integrated assessments in five selected regions, involving stakeholders, scientists and agent-based modelling experts. 5. Compare the management of water and to develop methodology for the agent-based simulation of water resource issues in Europe based on experiences. 3 main themes:  3 main themes Methodological development of agent models Application of these models to water resource issues in five regions of Europe Transfer of knowledge, experience and techniques, between experts on agent-based modelling and experts on water resource management, and between the project and the wider community of policy makers. Traditional approaches:  Traditional approaches Lack of transparency for end users Stakeholder behaviour fixed and exogenous Aggregate relationships (e.g. aggregate demand) rather than individual behaviour Constrained by the number of choices that can be represented in the model and conveyed to end users.

Key Lessons Learned (i):  Key Lessons Learned (i) Agent-based approaches allow the involvement of stakeholders in the development of models. Agent-based approaches aid policy development by supporting stakeholder learning about the complex dynamics of water resource management and other stakeholders’ viewpoints. Agent-based approaches yield a richer base for policy-making than using traditional modelling approaches. Key Lessons Learned (ii):  Key Lessons Learned (ii) Many agent-based models rather than a single common model are needed because the effects of water policy implementation differ according to context and history. There are many types of agent-based model and stakeholder participation so it is necessary to consider the most appropriate approach for a particular policy context. There are some common building blocks from which a variety of agent-based models can be constructed Key Lessons Learned (iii):  Key Lessons Learned (iii) To summarise, the Firma project has focussed on the ‘bottom up’ development of possible futures Using agent-based modelling In partnership with stakeholders To develop shared representations of Social and political structures Natural conditions That allow for clarifying and sharing perspectives In order to develop a better understanding of what needs to be considered or controlled in order to influence behaviour We believe that the Firma approach will lead to a new way of using participatory processes and integrated assessment models Other outputs:  Other outputs The project has… Raised the profile of participatory methods in resource management Provided proof-of-concept for participatory agent-based models Developed a strong network between the Firma partners which may lead to further collaborations Next steps…:  Next steps… Continued work and interaction with stakeholders e.g. formal feedback, model development, policy implications Possible applications in other regions within and outside of the EU Applications related to other resources besides freshwater With thanks to:  With thanks to The European Commission Our project officer All our stakeholder representatives Those who have provided us with data, answered our survey questionnaires, and taken us on guided tours The 42 people who have worked on the project over the last three years
