    Abstract

    Groundwater management faces a growing number of complexities and uncertainties including: the impacts of climate change, increasing demand, and socio-economic and ecological outcomes of management policies. To help deal with these issues, social learning is an interactive process which brings together scientists, policy makers, and stakeholder groups in order to share their views and develop a common framework for managing the system. This project aims to use a participatory modelling approach to support social learning about the future of groundwater management in South Australia. This paper reports on the data collection and analysis methods used in the scoping phase of the study. The central focus is on the process undertaken rather than the content of the results.
