Background information

Cost Benefit Analysis is a key investment appraisal tool which has features of both a full financial feasibility study as well as an economic analysis. This means that it takes the view of the project promoter and, separately, of the affected communities and society. As a result, understanding the main methodological considerations and techniques behind a CBA, and being able to interpret and challenge assumptions and results, is key when analysing and selecting projects in a situation where funding is limited and priorities need to be set.

Specific topics to be covered during the session

Walk through on how to perform a cost benefit analysis that will enable one to identify all the potential revenues and economic benefits, as well as financial and economic costs for a specific project, thus enabling one to decide if the project is economically feasible or otherwise. This will include practical examples and case studies of CBAs. 

Why is the session of relevance to our members?

Cost benefit analysis is a critical tool in the decision- making process and in project appraisal. 

Target Audience

• Accountants
• Business owners
• Government officials
• Project managers
