Community Based System Dynamics introduces researchers and practitioners to the design and application of participatory systems modeling with diverse communities.
Fires, Fuel, and the Fate of 3 Billion examines the complex nexus of issues at play in the developing world’s use of crude cookstoves– factors such as poverty, energy, environment, and gender inequality. Dr. Yadama is a long time partner of the SSDL and a co-instructor with Dr. Hovmand in the annual Winter Institute in India.
