Multiple Criteria Analysis (MCA) Sessions take place across Europe in September and October 2016

MCA is the fifth tool in the RISC-KIT toolbox and brings stakeholder feedback into the Decision Support System

                                         

 

September and October saw a series of sessions with stakeholders take place across Europe. Sessions were organised in the RISC-KIT Case Study sites Kiel Fjord, Ria Formosa, Kristianstad, North Norfolk, Porto Garibaldi, La Faute Sur Mer, Varna, Zebrugge, Tordera Delta, and Bocca di Magra.

 

 

Stakeholders take part in an MCA session in Kristianstad, Sweden.

 

The Multi-Criteria Analysis (MCA) is a tool used to assess the proposed measures in each of the RISC-KIT case studies with respect to criteria that capture the key dimensions of the decision-making process. In RISC-KIT, MCA is used in three ways: 1) as a way facilitate the communication and presentation of project results in a coherent and contextualized manner to relevant local stakeholders and decision-makers; 2) as a way to capture other types of knowledge, such as local every-day experiences, socio-economic and political factors that might affect how the proposed measures are perceived; and 3) as a way of facilitating interaction between local stakeholders and raising awareness of risks and potential measures.

 

 

Stakeholders in North Norfolk discuss Strategic Alternatives for Disaster Risk Reduction.

 

 More information on the MCA sessions is coming soon. You will be able to find it in the End User section of the RISC-KIT website.
