The purpose of this research is to develop a multi-Criteria Decision model that assesses sustainable green indicators for rural municipality in Lebanon.
The developed model uses the following green indicators:
i. Public sewage network
ii. Sewage treatment plant
iii. Renewable energy
iv. Natural reserves and green areas
v. Historical buildings preservation
vi. Transportation
vii. Solid waste management
viii. Natural reservoirs, wells and drinking water
ix. Stainable buildings
It uses the Analytical Hierarchy Process in order to evaluate the indicators weights. Then a modified version on PROMETHEE is used in order to aggregate the indicators and evaluate a green index.
Data were collected using interviews with experts and the model was finally applied and tested on three different Lebanese municipalities.
Sensitivity analysis was also applied on the model to compute the effect of each factor on the final weight.
