Use of analytic hierarchy process (AHP) as an instrument to develop a solid waste management assessment tool

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

The aim of this paper is to evaluate the feasibility of Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) as a data collection instrument in developing a solid waste management assessment tool. AHP is a quantifying tool that provides an effective and precise means of choosing options evident in many disciplines such as waste management where priority scales measure elements in relative terms. The
procedure is performed using Expert Choice software. A structured questionnaire survey was employed to obtain data from waste management practitioners across four work sectors and five locations in Nigeria, which adopted AHP for data collection and analysis. A solid waste management assessment function was derived that can be employed to establish the status of management strategies.
