Highlight Information
Development issues in developing countries belong to complex situations where society and environment are intricate. [...] Key Method The model-building methodology is thereby crucial: the interviewing process provided the behaviour rules and criteria while the context, i.e. the economic, demographic and agro-ecological environment is described following published or unpublished literature. Thanks to a sensitivity analysis on several selected parameters, the model appears fairly robust and sensitive enough. The…Expand Abstract
