Multicriteria decision aid for measuring resilience in a three-dimensional space

Session

Description

The reduction of risks bound to a possible disaster, to which a specific territorial unit could be involved, is a component strictly connected to the concept of sustainable development on its fundamental environmental, economic, political and social facets. Moreover, the evaluation of such reduction, depends not only from accumulated resilience, but in particular from realized campaigns for a bigger involvement of the people on the matter and from politics addressed to absorb eventual criticalities, both at infrastructural and human components. From that it is deriving that the capacity to absorb a risk is conceived as iper-complex system, whose management can be realized by mathematical models able to insert a set of criteria, most of times conflicting each other and on which stakeholders are waiting for patchy expectations. Such models, properly of Multi Criteria Decision Aid, able to conciliate qualitative and quantitative points of view by a participated process, can introduce in resilience a concept of measuring “if and how much my town is resilient”. That means, on willing to underline major or minor criticalities in a three-dimensional space, to consider the best harmonic combination of the named facets and to provide a ranking among cities in comparison (γ problematic).

Keywords:

resilience, sustainability, MCDA, γ problematic, spatial ranking
