Resilience of systems is a major research challenge for our world’s future. The systems in which our societies operate have social, ecological and technical components that are ever more connected. Our ambitions for guiding these systems are growing. Agent-based modelling is one of the techniques for investigating the complex, often surprising behaviour of these systems, and their response to policy interventions.
