The Multi-Actor Multi-Criteria Analysis (MAMCA©) is a decision-making method to enable the simultaneous evaluation of alternative policy measures, scenarios, technologies, etc. while explicitly including different stakeholders’ opinions at an early stage of the decision-making process.
Organisations use decision-making models to make faster and better decisions. However, the existing models for multi-criteria analysis do not offer the possibility of involving stakeholders during the whole decision-making process, even if they propose a collaborative platform at all.
MAMCA is extremely well suited to complex decision-making processes such as those involved in mobility policies and the transport sector where many stakeholders from several areas and with different background are involved. It renders the decision-making processe more efficient and contributes strongly to critical debates by offering to approach these with a democratic dimension.
The software available on www.mamca.be can help to evaluate policy interventions in mobility in terms of their stakeholder support and it also includes a multi-criteria analysis module that can be used for sustainability assessment.
