Need use Netlogo Programming Software, and choose principle 5 in this link to implement model


You are to build the agent—based model of the fishing lake(s) that we discussed in class. See the
ostrom-project subfolder for details about the model. 1. Choose what aspects of the ostrom-project-notes.txt file you want to implement in your group’s
ABM. Include this modified document when you turn this in. 2. Implement the ABM. 3. Investigate whether fishing is a common-pool resource, with the standard CPR problem, in your model
in the following fashion: (a) Run the model in an unrestricted manner, and calculate total happiness of your agents (by some
metric.) (b) Introduce a daily quota: a maximum amount of fish that can be caught in any one day. The
quota can either be at the individual or group level. Then, demonstrate that there is a binding
quota which increases happiness. You may wish to use BehaviorSearch to find the Optimal quota
level. You do not need to worry about quota enforcement or fines for violating the quota, etc. You can implement this quota as being automatically enforced so individuals are simply cannot fish when
the quota is filled. 4. Write up a description of your model, the list of items you have chosen to implement, and the outcome
of the quota. As you work on this, think about the “socia ” aspects of this model. Write down a few
thoughts about that aspect in your write—up.


The purpose of this project is to attempt to implement the emergence of one of the principles of polycentric governance.
This paper describes the principles (clickable): Cox, Michael, Gwen Arnold, and Sergio villamayor—tomas
(2009), “A Review And Reassessment of Design Principles for Community—based Natural Resource Management.” Deliverables: Please read them and have in mind which one you would like to try to implement for Apr 19. We will
assign groups from there. First write a document describing how you will try to implement emergence of this principle. This
document is due Apr 26. This document should describe how you plan to achieve each part of
“Specifics” below. Second you will code your project to try to find this emergence. this will be due at the last day of classes:
May 7. (If your group needs more time at that point please email me). Your document will follow through
on each of the parts of “specifics” below. You will turn in the code and a writeup about the final project. Specifics: Your implementation will consider one principle as the object of inquiry. You can assume other principles.
For example, if you were testing principle 5, graduatated sanctions, you could assume prinicple 4 holds, that
there is some kind of monitoring. Then your community somehow chooses among different kinds of sanctions,
some of which are graduated sanctions. Your implementation will in some way test: “Is it the case that communities that have this principle are
more successful than communities without?” You will have to decide how to measure success, and you will
have to test this principle using BehaviorSpace somehow. It should also consider the emergence of this principle. So there should be a way built into your model
for this principle to come about through the choices made by the agents that is not predetermined. For
example, agents who are able to vote periodically on rules, and then rules that follow your principle are the
ones that win the vote eventually.
