The same people who attended Session 1 (including the Facilitator and the Modeller) and, perhaps, some who attended Session 2. It is particularly important that the people from the organisation that will become the Custodians of the model can attend.




The Modeller guides the local participants through the process of installing, loading and running the model. The stepwise instruction continues through visualisation and analysis of the results. This requires several laptops, it is very useful for participants to bring their own.


Together the local Custodians, the Modeller and the Facilitator create a manual for how to used the model. This can be done by video recording the process and edit the material into tutorials.


The bespoke computer model is handed over to the local people for use as they see fit.


Any outstanding tasks, such as editing video tutorials, are assigned to specific people and delivery dates agreed.




A bespoke computer model that enable the local community to analyse local environmental processes of concern and communicate their understanding to decision makers.



A different outcome

The time allocated may not suffice to run through the model use in sufficient detail, then a second meeting with a few of the participants (the Custodians, the Facilitator and the Modeller) need to be scheduled.
