Number Of Objectives

The number of objectives that a planning process is trying to achieve -- single or multiple. A planning process may have a single objective (e.g. maintain or increase areas for conservation) or multiple objectives which may be in conflict (e.g. maintain or increase areas for conservation, and increase areas for alternative energy development). Multi-objective decision problems may require the application of multi-objective decision analysis. Multiple stakeholder groups representing different interests and values in a planning process often result in multiple objectives.
