Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the application of Analytical Hierarchical (AHP) on Geographic Information System (GIS) based Multcriteria Decision Analysis (Making) MCDA (M) for flood risk management strategies at the Limpopo River Basin in Mozambique. An analytical process is carried out based on GIS Decision Support System (DSS) taking into account the role of ICT and interest of both the decision makers and different stakeholders namely the householders and economic agents, within the basin. The study aims to provide the different stakeholders and decision makers with a decision tool and it focuses on the Mozambican section Limpopo River Basin as part of the national strategies to mitigate the exposure to both floods and droughts that cyclically affect the region.
