AbstractThis research sought to improve modelling for complex environmental, socio-political, engineering and economic systems by addressing uncertainty and sensitivity analyses. The paper presents the predominant input factors and ranks them using simulation-based localized sensitivity analysis (SaLSA), which is a hybrid of ?differential analysis' and ?simulation-based sampling' techniques. It uses water quality failures in distribution networks to assess sensitivity analyses results.
