Strategic Environmental Assessment of Industrial Development Scenarios Through Multi-criteria Decision Making Technique in Iran

Jafar Nouri and Bizhan Maghsoudlou Kamali

Abstract:
In this study, the ways in which the multiple criteria decision making technique is applied was considered in order to appraise strategic environmental scenarios of industrial development. The main purpose of the study was to systematize the environmental considerations in policies, plans and programs of industrial development of Iran through a strategic environmental assessment approach and further determine the environmental strategies of stable industrial development. The analytical hierarchy process was employed in order to integrate evaluation of industrial development scenarios. The results show that the most suitable scenario of industrial development of Iran is the development of industries such as: electronics, biotechnology and new material manufacturing as well as the innovation of fully grown industries according to environmental considerations. The least suitable scenario of industrial development is the continuation of the existing industrial strategies which consist of export development, privatization, energy consuming industries and machinery technology development without environmental considerations.
