Abstract for:Development of a Shared Vision Planning Model for Participants’ Consensus: Application in South Chungcheong Province, South Korea

Damage from multi-year droughts is currently increasing worldwide, and Boryeong Dam, which is located in South Chungcheong Province, was also heavily affected by the drought that took place in Korea from 2015 to 2017. Boryeong Dam has recorded a water reserve rate of about half of normal year’s average at the end of 2016, which resulted in restrictive water rationing to the districts where the water is supplied. Since traditional unilateral decision making approaches have resulted in conflicts between policymakers and stakeholders, active participation from both groups is required from the beginning of the process. In this research, a Shared Vision Planning model was developed with Stella Architect to help the policymakers and stakeholders to reach an agreement more efficiently. Since the software contains significant visual effects, it is expected to help non-experts to understand the problem easily. The model developed in this research aims to calculate the water shortage in each districts as well as the reliability, resilience, and vulnerability of the dam by using various future inflow scenarios. As a result, an easier consensus between policymakers and stakeholders was achieved from several committee meetings by using the developed Shared Vision Model.
