Comparing multi-criteria decision analysis and integrated assessment to support long-term water supply planning
TLDR
It is found that the MAVT-type models provide higher distinguishability and a more robust basis for discussion than the IA- type models, however, the needed complexity of the model should be determined based on the intended use of themodel within the decision support process.
A Flexible Approach for the Reinforcement of Water Networks Using Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis
TLDR
A phased planning horizon scheme is proposed that considers various possible future demands that the network might have to cope with during its lifespan and the value of MCDA lies in the insightful information that it provides for decision makers.
Collaborative, Risk-Informed, Triple Bottom Line, Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis Planning Framework for Integrated Urban Water Management
The historical division of water management into different sectors, with financially and technologically driven decision processes, makes taking a more holistic approach to finding sustainable
Structured decision-making for sustainable water infrastructure planning and four future scenarios
Water supply and wastewater infrastructures are vital for human well-being and environmental protection; they adhere to the highest standards, are expensive and long-lived. Because they are also

Reliability-Based Approach to Multicriteria Decision Analysis for Water Resources
Analyses of water resource allocation problems can be undertaken using multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA), yet various sources of uncertainty exist in the application of MCDA methods, including
Structured decision-making for sustainable water infrastructure planning and four future scenarios
Water supply and wastewater infrastructures are vital for human well-being and environmental protection; they adhere to the highest standards, are expensive and long-lived. Because they are also
Combining scenario planning and multi-criteria decision analysis in practice
TLDR
Two case-studies are described where the use of scenario planning with multi-attribute value theory with Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis was used to support real-world strategic decisions.
The Decision Analysis Interview Approach in the Collaborative Management of a Large Regulated Water Course
TLDR
Interactive multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA) was applied in a collaborative process which aimed at an ecologically, socially, and economically sustainable water course regulation policy and helped to develop a consensus solution in a case having strong conflicts of interest.
Evaluation of water supply augmentation and water demand management options for the City of Cape Town
This paper discusses an application of MCDA to integrated water resource planning for the City of Cape Town. As a result of rapid growth in recent years, there has been increasing pressures on
Enhancing Strategy Evaluation in Scenario Planning: a Role for Decision Analysis
TLDR
This paper demonstrates how decision analysis can be used to structure the strategy evaluation process in a way which avoids the problems associated with earlier proposals and leads to a clear and documented rationale for the selection of a particular strategy.
