Abstract

The objective of this literature review is to provide evidence of existing knowledge and experience related to the project, with examples of where systems thinking (ST) and System Dynamics (SD) have been used to support policy making, explain complexity in systems that policy makers are working within, and especially where these methods have been used in the waste system.“Systems thinking” is a general term that describes an approach to understanding and working with complexity in the real world and it covers a range of different formal methodologies. System Dynamics is a specific system modelling and system practitioner methodology. The intended audience for this literature review is experts, policy makers and analysts at Defra. For those not already familiar with systems thinking, the introduction section in Section 2 provides a general overview of the field and its methods. There are three sections within this literature review, each with a different focus:[1] Systems thinking to support policy making[ 2]An introduction to System Dynamics [3]The use of System Dynamics in policy making for the waste system (PDF) Review of Literature on Systems Thinking and System Dynamics for Policy Making.
