We are dedicated to learning, research and development of systems thinking and modelling with a special focus on climate change adaptation problems. The research group brings together Griffith University experts in methodologies including Systems Thinking, System Dynamics, Bayesian Modelling and Social Network Analysis and applies them to a range of problems involving ecological, social and economic aspects of human interaction with nature.
- Climate Change Vulnerability and Risk Assessment
- Integrated Coastal Zone Management
- Integrated Natural Resource Management
- Integrated Water Resource Management and Security
- Undertake research using systems modelling approaches
- Create greater awareness within Griffith University (and beyond) of the utility of using systems approaches to add value to research and policy uptake
- Provide a formal network within Griffith University that can be used as a forum for system thinkers and modellers, or those who would like to learn about these methodologies, to (amongst other things) exchange ideas, experiences and data
- Form linkages with similar modelling groups, both nationally and internationally, and
- Provide modelling support for researchers, academics and students.
