The Dwelling Near the Ditch Game

The Dwelling Near the Ditch Game aims to support learning and dialogue about the opportunities and trade-offs facing communities which lack waste collection services, and the additional stress that climate change (in the form of more frequent flooding, aggravated by blocked drains and ditches) can pose for them As the game is played, players experience the tensions and trade-offs that may arise between: 

Individual and collective decision-making; 
Decisions made today versus the decisions that can be made tomorrow; 
Decisions made today in the context of incomplete information.  
As players confront these challenges, rich opportunities for learning and dialogue between different stakeholders emerge.
