dc.description.abstract At the outset I need to emphasise that my interest in MCDA (Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis) is primarily in its application to natural resource management decision-making. Within that realm of application, I suspect that, in my initial enthusiasm several years ago, I was guilty of falling into the trap of “When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail”. Over time, it has become clearer to me that on the one hand, the field of MCDA provides a multitude of tools which can indeed address a wide array of problems, but, on the other, there are questions that need to be answered using other tools.
