An open-source framework written in Julia for world dynamics modeling and simulation.

The World Dynamics Project

The World Dynamics project aims to provide a modern framework to investigate integrated assessment models of sustainable development, based on current software engineering and scientific machine learning techniques. Our group is developing a Julia library to allow scientists to easily use and adapt different world models, from Meadows et al.'s World3 to recent proposals. By enabling an open, interdisciplinary, and consistent comparative approach to scientific model development, our goal is to inform global policy makers on environmental and economic issues.

Getting started

From the Julia REPL, install the package with

]add WorldDynamics

You can now use the package, e.g. for reproducing Figure 7.7 from the book Dynamics of growth in a finite world:

using WorldDynamics

Here is the output superposed to the original picture: image

For how to produce different figures (and much more), please see the documentation.
