Involve multiple stakeholder groups to reach a sustainable consensus in mobility projects

Research output: Unpublished contribution to conferenceUnpublished abstract

Abstract

A successful transport and mobility project normally requires support from the involved stakeholder groups. While the concept of sustainability plays an increasingly important role, the understanding of sustainability from the stakeholders involved in or affected by transportation projects can be in different ways. The multi-actor multi-criteria analysis (MAMCA) is a methodology that allows the inclusion of multiple stakeholder groups in the decision-making process. The stakeholder groups can hold different criteria set to evaluate the alternatives, while their preferences can be confronted at the final stage of MAMCA.
The objective of MAMCA is to reach a consensus by assessing stakeholder preferences for decision-makers. It is not a sustainable solution if only MAMCA is used for evaluation as it focuses on stakeholders' preferences. It is unclear whether there is concordance between the sustainability alternative ranking and stakeholder preference ranking. Thus, a framework is proposed that combines the MCA, MAMCA, and rank correlation to find the synergies between sustainability and stakeholder preference. The MCA is used to evaluate the most sustainable solution based on the economic, environmental, and social components, while the MAMCA can show the stakeholders’ preferences. Afterward, by applying a novel weight sensitivity analysis model based on inverse mixed-integer linear optimization, it is possible to make a sustainable consensus decision by considering both MCA and MAMCA evaluation results.
