A Multi-Criteria Decision Tool to Support Seismic Resilience Investments Under Deep Uncertainty
Project Aim Create a tool to assist decision makers in understanding the synergies and trade-offs between different resilience investments. Create a process for using the tool that enables decision makers to acknowledge and work with an uncertain future. Considering the long-term impacts of major investment decisions, in particular for land-use and infrastructure, the context gets more complicated under deep uncertainty. The solution included using plausible future scenarios and Multi-Criteria Decision Support methods to draw out assumptions, preferences, and uncertainties within the decision making process.
