Modeling the ultra-pure quartz exploitation in northeastern madagascar: Impact of the activity on the socio-economical situation of the population

Abstract

The collection of ultra-pure quartz is a traditional occupation of rural populations in northeastern Madagascar to complement the traditional farming activity, namely the rice crop. In this paper, we model and simulate these phenomena in order to assess the possible impact of this complementary activity on the socio-economic situation of the population. We have used the Multi-Agent System approach. In order to maximize our interpretation of some results and the scope of our analysis, we have implemented our model on two platforms, respectively named Cormas and ADK/RDK. We then examine the simulations and open a socio-economic discussion of the results
