Analysis of Alternative Management Strategies
Wenzel, PIK Potsdam
The aim of this sub-project is the derivation of policy-relevant results and statements based on a clear and productive conceptualization of the results of a comprehensive systems analysis with respect to the Havel region as a whole and, in more detail, also to three contained sub-regions (focus areas). The categories and concepts developed and applied for the realization of this task allow:
conceptions are the necessary prerequisites for a systematic comparison of the
given alternative strategies using Multicriteria Analysis (MCA) and Equity
Analysis as they are provided by the software tool NAIADE (developed and
licensed for application by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission
JRC EC in Ispra / Italy).
outcome of this MCA-supported comparison is a complete ranking of the
alternatives with respect to their suitability for solving the originally stated
problems. An iterative application of Equity Analysis may serve as a guidance to
appropriate compromises between affected antagonistic interest groups or their
those results are important contributions to the decision support system (DSS),
which will be constructed in sub-project 8. Vice
versa, the results of sub-projects 2, 9 and 11 are necessary inputs for the
performance of the above-mentioned topics.
The remaining sub-projects deliver the results of model-supported impact analyses in form of state variables and indicators, which serve for the derivation of appropriate valuation criteria.
