Description

The course introduced students to decision analysis in environmental management, covering Bayesian approaches and Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA). Different types of decision analytical problems and modelling solutions to them were presented, using several case studies to illustrate the approaches. Participatory and expert-based approaches were addressed. In addition, methods for defining criteria for decision making based on environmental values were examined. The course included both introductory lecturing and hands-on exercises. The course was targeted to young scientists and PhD students.
