Implementing Impact Assessment

Multi Criteria Analysis

multi criteria analysis

Multi-criteria analysis (MCA) is a class of procedures designed to aid decision-making where options are evaluated based on more than one criterion, in particular where these criteria are measured in different units which can not be readily converted into each other. Many different MCA procedures exist, but all are based on the principles of data normalization and of assigning weights to the different criteria in order to arrive at an integrated score for each option. 

MCA procedures are very useful in multifunctional disciplines such as agriculture, where all management choices have multiple effects and involve trade-offs within and between the social, economic and environmental spheres.
