Exploring the Role of Networks on Strategic Decisions Making of Pastoralist in Central Australia
Statistical Network Modelling
TABLE 1. QAP-CORRELATION COEFFICIENTS
At α=0.05 ‘p<0.05’, both family and friendship ties are significantly correlated with agistment network.
TABLE 2. REGRESSION COEFFICIENTS
TABLE 3. MODEL FIT
Social network especially friendship ties play a significant role in mediating agistment practice. However, a lot of other factors are needed to explain the variability in agistment ties.
Parametric social network modelling (P* approaches)
Dynamic multi-agent and network modelling
Can a model of land attributes and individual behavior reproduce the global picture?
Build from the bottom up …
At what point does a pastoralist agist?
Different kinds of relationships between pastoralists create different weights of connections, affecting likelihood of agisting (or other practice)
Little on the role of pastoral networks on adoption
