Abstract for: South Africa Chapter Annual Meeting and Roundtable

The South Africa System Dynamics Chapter is the first in sub-Saharan Africa, which was approved and recognised by the System Dynamics Society in February 2014. The goal of the Chapter is to promote the understanding and awareness of system dynamics as a problem-solving approach to many of the Africa-based problems. The participants of the roundtable will be Chapter members as well as any academics and practitioners interested in research on African issues and challenges. Being the first roundtable, the purpose will be to introduce the Chapter, discuss upcoming planned activities, exchange new ideas, and register individuals interested in joining the Chapter as Associate Members.
