Description

In interdisciplinary projects – such as the Bereg landscape revitalization, Hungary Upper Tisza - one of the main challenge how to incorporate the different fields of interests, aspects. In the methodology - to reflect sustainability, as qualitative criteria - different domains (i.e. the economy, society and the population) need to be considered. The results from discourse-derived narratives and extensive modelling can be incorporated in the project alternatives’ evaluation, reflecting long term scenarios generated (Scenes Project, 2007). Multi criteria assessment (MCA) is a methodology incorporates the different opinion of the interested parties to support decision making. The method allows to take into account more diverse public opinions and supports a better, transparent documentation of opinions, norms. In the Bereg project the improvement of the MCA method to reflect the specific aspects of areas with high flood risk and natural, social vulnerability took place with intention to improve the data collection and decision making process at regional and national level. Results were fed into the Bereg Interreg project (HUSKUA/05/01/139), MCA results has been accepted and inserted into the feasibility study of the flood reservoir alternatives. It allowed a better incorporation of the opinions of local SH’s. Development of main pillars of criteria of the proposed assessment, data collection procedure and its difficulties and finally decision making results are presented.

Multi criteria assessment – tool for integrated water management in Bereg landscape, Upper Tisza

In interdisciplinary projects – such as the Bereg landscape revitalization, Hungary Upper Tisza - one of the main challenge how to incorporate the different fields of interests, aspects.
