Participatory Cost-Benefit-Analysis

Community based needs assessments lead to action planning to develop activities and programs in an intervention area. To guide the review and prioritization of potential solutions that form the basis of community action plans the GDPC is working with the Institute for Social and Environmental Transition (ISET) to better integrate simplified and participatory approaches to cost-benefit analysis with existing assessment approaches and follow-on action planning. The aim is to provide useful guidance material for broader application that addresses issues commonly arising for action planning based on previously conducted assessments, i.e. how to handle intangible costs and benefits and distributional concerns.
