Decision-makers within the mobility, transport and logistics sector need to account for a wide range of conflicting information from actors with varied backgrounds and interests. This book presents Multi Actor Multi Criteria Analysis (MAMCA) developed by Professor Cathy Macharis, designed to involve and empower stakeholders within these sectors at all stages of the decision-making process.
This comprehensive work draws on 15 years of research, during which MAMCA has been deployed to support sustainable decisions within the transport and mobility sectors. Contrary to traditional approaches in the area, the MAMCA methodology pushes stakeholder perspectives to the forefront of analysis using a co-construction approach, making the methodology unique within the group decision-making literature.
Based on a strong record of both theoretical and real-life applications in the context of mobility, transport and logistics, this book provides decision-makers, managers and practitioners with the tools to use, understand and replicate the MAMCA methodology.

`MAMCA is not just another multi criteria analysis methodology. We've applied it in more than 20 industrial and research projects and it never stopped surprising us positively by the often unexpected and "out of the box" findings it led to. Thus, this book is of fundamental importance to transport researchers performing impact assessment.' -- Angelos Bekiaris, Hellenic Institute of Transport, Greece
`This edited book provides an essential resource for anyone involved in evaluation and decision-making in sustainable transport. The value of the book goes beyond the application of a specific technique and it contains insights that are relevant to all those involved in sustainable transport and logistics.' -- Michael Browne, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
