Abstract
Every decision taken in the management and planning of a forest resource generally affects several wide-ranging criteria, such as economic (timber, livestock, forage, hunting, etc.), environmental (biodiversity conservation, soil erosion control, carbon sequestration, etc.) and social (recreation, population settlement, level of employment, etc.). Therefore, for most forest management optimisation problems, especially concerning publicly owned forests, the decision maker (DM) has a preferences structure involving several criteria of very different nature. In short, in many cases, forest management models need to be formulated within the multiple criteria decision-making (MCDM) paradigm. Moreover, nowadays many decision-making processes undertaken in forestry imply participatory decision-making processes involving several stakeholders. According to these ideas, this presentation aims to review the main contributions to the field of forest management made from a MCDM and /or with a group decision-making (GDM) perspective during the last 30 years, and showing the papers which integrate these methods within a DSS framework
