    Abstract

    Vulnerability and adaptation assessment will increase in importance if climate changes and variability strengthens as predicted. The assessment requires a multi-criteria approach as the consequences of any adaptation alternatives are intangible and valued differently among stakeholders. Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) provides an analytic framework for making preference statements and valuations that reveal the ‘best’ compromise or consensus decision for adaptation.
