Abstract


Assessment of deforestation factor of riverine-forest; the multi-objective linear software design model considering both natural and anthropogenic parameters have been developed. The AHP model solves the difficult problem and the varied nature of conflicting objectives of the problems. This systematic research is paying attention on defectively area of Riverine forests using the analytic hierarchy process model which gives qualitative and quantitative judgment and ranking of the multi- causes, problems and affected Alternatives due to criteria. The integrated criteria have been derived from field survey data and specialist assessment; the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is used for weight of conflicting objectives.
