Modelling Consensus Building in Delphi Practices for Participated Transport Planning

Stakeholder engagement is a key issue for sustainable transport planning. Appropriate methods and tools are needed to support an efficient participation process. This study presents a combination of Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) with the Delphi method as a useful support for participatory decision-making processes aimed at consensus building. A case study will be presented and the results will be analysed also via an agent-based model (ABM), used to reproduce the same process of convergence of opinions, with the aim to understand the role of network topology, stakeholder influence and other sensitive variables on the emergence of consensus.
