Iguana production in Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama is a complex system with various stakeholders. In order to explore the opinions of stakeholders about iguana production, the system was discussed with two stakeholder groups: Farmers and Organizations. Organizations consisted of officials from government and non-governmental organizations. The stakeholders' discussions resulted in conceptual models of the system. These models were used to discuss problems, possible solutions and the feasibility of these solutions. Problems related to the market, to costs, the environment, information, reproduction and legal problems were mentioned. Suggested solutions included presenting proposals to financiers, organizing farmers, organizing courses and exchanging experiences.
