Abstract Abstract: Decision-making for sustainable development of agricultural regions is challenged by
the complexity of the livestock system and the involvement of multiple actors. To support the
decision-making process, model-based games could improve the understanding of possible consequences
of decisions at hand. This study analyzed the opportunities to use model-based games
in order to support the decision- making process in the Peelhorst region, an area with a high livestock
density in the south of the Netherlands.
Stakeholders were interviewed to identify key issues in the decision-making process. This yielded
two types of issues: 1) issues related to the sustainability of the livestock system; such as public
health and odor and 2) process related issues, i.e. issues related to governance or stakeholder interaction,
such as trust and awareness. For each issue a literature review was made and possible
indicators and models were identified. For half of the issues clear indicators or models were
found, whereas for the other half no clear indicator could be defined and additional research is
needed. Tackling issues related to governance requires discussions or workshops with relevant
stakeholders. Model-based games could feed into these discussions to encourage knowledge exchange
and support decision-making.
