Special Issue Information
In 2015 United Nations adopted a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to “end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity of all as part of a new sustainable development agenda”. These goals include:
- No poverty
- Zero hunger
- Good Health and Well-Being
- Quality Education
- Clean Water and Sanitation
- Affordable and Clean Energy
- Decent Work and Economic Growth
- Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
- Reduced Inequalities
- Sustainable Cities and Communities
- Responsible Consumption and Production
- Climate Action
- Life Below Water
- Life on Land
- Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
The achievement of all these goals requires decision making taking into account multiple decision criteria usually complex and in conflict. This Special Issue is devoted to the proposal and development of multidimensional approaches for decision making which can contribute to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This includes but it is not only limited to the proposal of new Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) methods, applied works where problems are formulated in an innovative way showing the suitability of MCDM techniques and approaches for their resolution, literature reviews contributing to enrich the actual knowledge about the problem and any other quantitative approach analyzing and treating different situation related with sustainable development goals using a multidimensional framework.
