Development and evaluation of multiple-objective decision-making methods for watershed management planning

Development and evaluation of multiple-objective decision-making methods for watershed management planning

Journal of the American Water Resources Association 38(2): 517-529

Making decisions for environmental management is a complex task due to the multiplicity and diversity of technological choices. Furthermore, the exploitation of natural resources and the preservation of the natural environment imply objectives that are often in conflict within a sustainable development paradigm. Managers and other decision makers require techniques to assist them in understanding strategic decision making.
