Abstract Decision making on hazard surveillance in livestock product chains is a multi-hazard, multistakeholder, and multi-criteria process that includes a variety of decision alternatives. The multihazard aspect means that the allocation of the scarce resource for surveillance should be optimized from the point of view of a surveillance portfolio (SP) rather than a single hazard. In this paper, we present a novel conceptual approach for economic optimization of a SP to address the resource allocation problem for a surveillance organization from a theoretical perspective. This approach uses multi-criteria techniques to evaluate the performances of different settings of a SP, taking cost-benefit aspects of surveillance and stakeholders’ preferences into account. The credibility of the approach has also been checked for conceptual validity, data needs and
operational validity; the application potentials of the approach are also discussed.
