I brought up the issue because the current UN models for sustainable development lack conceptual frameworks to model P2P distributed processes in general and resilience.

thanks for the connection ... I'm not sure there is no misunderstanding of what we do; we don't really build models, but are a depository of p2p initiatives from various other players and we try to make sense of what is happening on the ground;

personally, I put a lot of attention to sustainability, not through models, but by reporting and supporting practices of open design, which are most often implicitely resilient, since there is no intrinsic need for planned obsolesence and other artificial waste and scarcity strategies for peer production communities; there is a growing movement of open design resilience, sustainability, renewable energy, open technology transfer etc ..

Roberto Verzola is to my mind the political economist who has done most in studying this, see http://p2pfoundation.net/Category:Commons_Economics ; Wolfgang Hoeschele is planning an ambitious database based on a Needs, Organisational REsources, (I forgot what the A stands for)


I'm  sure that the proposed modelling effort will contribute to this field; if you are ideologically open, you may also want to talk with people like Paul Cockshott and the people of the Center for Transition Science at UNAM in Mexico City; who are very good at econometric modelling and interested in a cybernetic planning revival, 

Michel
