MSc. student Flaminia Squitieri (WUR) carries out the first phase of the fieldwork of the SIMTWIST Project for the Italian case study (Rimini)

Flaminia Squitieri, MSc. student form the Department of Environmental Systems Analysis of the University of Wageningen, carried out online interviews to 7 stakeholders related to water system in Rimini. These interviews were originally planned to be carried out in person in the month of March 2020. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the fieldwork was modified, and the interviews were carried out online between April and October 2020 with the collaboration of Dr. Elena Toth and Dr. Mattia Neri.  Each of the interviews was divided into two sections: the first part consisted of a conceptual map regarding the perception of what a robust integrated water system requires, while the second part consisted of a questionnaire on governance and the capacity to reach agreements on key issues of the water system. The analysis of each stakeholder’s conceptual model is an essential part of the project’s WP3, which focuses on participatory modelling of the water system. On the other hand, the questionnaire is a fundamental component of WP4, which deals with the hydro-social cycle of the city of Rimini.
