Community and Environmental OR: Towards a New Agenda

Midgley, Gerald and Reynolds, Martin (2004). Community and Environmental OR: Towards a New Agenda. In: Midgley, Gerald and Ochoa-Arias, Alejandro eds. Community Operational Research. Contemporary Systems Thinking. Boston, USA: Springer, pp. 297–316.



In 1999, the UK-based Operational Research Society granted charitable funding to a systemic intervention project, based in the Centre for Systems Studies at the University of Hull, designed to create an agenda for the future role of operational research (OR) in environmental planning and management. Our final report on the project was published in 2001. This chapter summarises our findings, then focuses in detail on one aspect of these: the outputs from a mini-conference held with OR practitioners who participated in developing the agenda.
