Abstract

Indopotamia is a nine-party, mediated, multi-issue negotiation game involving a dispute over the allocation of land and water resources shared by three countries in an international river basin. The game provides opportunities to discuss the natural, societal, and political dimensions of science-intensive policy disputes in which high levels of uncertainty are involved. The game also introduces water professionals and aspiring water professionals to the Water Diplomacy Framework (WDF). The game is designed to be played in four separate segments. Each explores an important element of the mutual-gains approach to negotiation.
