Social simulation methodology is regularly implemented in participatory processes to facilitate learning among stakeholders. Such research is increasingly scrutinised to evaluate their impacts. Though, traditional evaluation techniques struggle due to the array of goals and methods in participatory social simulation. An even bigger problem is that participatory research is not happening in a vacuum and distilling relevant contributions is a challenge. This paper provides a design protocol for an agent-based social simulation process in the Mekong region and aims to contribute to the emerging discussion on designing and testing evaluation methods in participatory processes.
