Let Them Plan and Play:
Autonomous African Resource Management
- Senior Researcher, French National Institute for Science and Technology for Environment and Agriculture
Nils Ferrand works with farmers and stakeholders to build participatory, role-based models that help decision-makers and policymakers share and manage natural resources in Africa. In this talk, Ferrand will discuss the European project, Afromaison, which uses a multi-scale gaming tool called “Wat a Game” that explores and tests management strategies.
Ferrand’s research focuses on self-sufficient governing methods and tools in Africa and Europe. He has led an electronic public debate on coastal-area management and has designed and participated in European and national modeling projects.
