Multicriteria Output Integration Analysis

Part of the Alliance for Global Sustainability Bookseries book series (AGSB, volume 4)


CETP’s relationship with the Alliance for Global Sustainability (AGS) implies that sustainability is a basic concern of the project’s scenarios assessment process. Because sustainability is by nature a multidimensional concept, it requires the use of methodological approaches specifically designed to tackle decision-making problems of this type. Such a methodology should encompass multiple criteria, including economic, social and environmental issues, under sustainability constraints, and produce results that are transparent and easy for different stakeholders to understand.
