Abstract

In 2009 the Finnish Association for Nature Conservation and Fortum ltd. started a project for comparing the desirability and feasibility of different mitigation measures to enhance freshwater mussel and salmon populations. Multicriteria assessment (multi-criteria decision analysis) was used as an integral part of the project. It provided a systemic framework for gathering and presenting information, interviewing key stakeholders, discussing the results and deciding on further actions. Altogether 12 decision analysis interviews were carried out with the help of Web-HIPRE. In this publication we describe the realization of multicriteria assessment and its results. We also present estimates of the costs, benefits and feasibility of different measures and alternatives. Proposals for further study are also suggested. Multicriteria assessment helped the steering group of the project and the respondents to get a better overall understanding of the planning situation. It also helped to understand the scale of the impacts and the uncertainty related to them. As an outcome the analysis produced the desirability of alternatives from each participants' point of view. While not giving an absolute ranking to the alternatives, since it depends on the point of view, multicriteria assessment provided a common ground for the stakeholders for planning further recommendations.
