Opinions and outlook


Within the project SPARKLE MARS FS has been used as a decision support tool in a series of workshops in Thailand and Vietnam. Here is a summary of the conclusions and comments of the workshop paricipants:

  • MARS FS was found easy to navigate
  • The causes-tree tool was found extremly useful to understand the behaviour of the model
  • Possibility to work interactively with the model and test each policy instrument individually
  • Explore synergetic effects of policy combinations
  • Outputs as graphs or tables, and exporting function
  • Minor criticism was the list of pre-prepared indicators
