Author(s): Kabassi, K., Mpalomenou, S., & Martinis, A.

The role of national parks is multidimensional, diverse, and important, and maybe supported by a good website. However, a website should be evaluated to ensure that the goals of a national park are met. For this reason, an evaluation of the websites of Protected Areas Managing Boards in two Mediterranean countries, Greece and Italy, has been implemented using Multi-Criteria Decision Making models. The paper presents the effective combination of AHP with PROMETHEE II for evaluating environmental websites that contain content about the national parks. The implementation of the evaluation experiment reveals the effectiveness of the combination of AHP with PROMETHEE II in environmental website evaluation and presents the electronic presence of national parks in two Mediterranean countries. The results of PROMETHEE II are combined with another multi-criteria decision-making model called Simple Additive Weighting, which has been effectively used in the past for the evaluation of environmental websites.
