Variously called shared vision planning (SVP), computer-aided negotiation (CAN), mediated modeling, stakeholder assisted modeling, and group model building, CADRe refers to various, largely independent and isolated efforts to explicitly integrate technical computer modeling into group problem solving. Each brand has developed different implementation approaches, been applied to different problem contexts (water resources, ecosystem management, air emissions/climate change, corporate management, etc) and used for different decision purposes (visioning exercises, planning processes, and negotiated decision-making).
At the CADRe workshop IWR, Sandia and USIECR attempted to bring together people interested in CADRe to define its boundaries, best practices, and how to institutionalize and promote CADRe water resources planning and management.
Below are links to various websites of the CADRe community as brought together in Albuquerque:
