The observations and insights of PoliRural project – Häme region System Dynamics Modeling and drivers analysis

PoliRural’s twelve (12) pilot teams have familiarized themselves with the system modelling process through four phases. The four phases are the
following:

  • Drivers Analysis for 12 local pilots
  • Building the Matrix KPI – DRIVERS
  • The High-Level Model
  • System Dynamics Experts’ Layer

As described by Dr Patrick Crehan (CKA) in the internal working document for PoliRural’s twelve (12) pilots:

“DRIVERS ANALYSIS is a process whereby you obtain an overview of the factors that are driving change in your region, with a view to understanding the challenges faced and how they are likely to evolve in the coming years.”

PoliRural’s 12 pilots’ Drivers Analysis built-up information and insights that made it possible for System Dynamics Modelling experts to identify rural attractiveness main dynamics and the related Key Performance Indicators (KPI). The second phase of the system modelling, which is “Building the Matrix KPI – DRIVERS”, was completed.

In terms of System Dynamics Modelling (SDM), the main dynamics are POPULATION, EMPLOYMENT, EDUCATION, AGRICULTURE, NATURAL CAPITAL, QUALITY OF LIFE, RURAL ATTRACTIVENESS AND RURAL RETENTION CAPACITY.
