    Een maatschappelijke kosten/baten analyse (KBA) kan ook bij complexe, wereldwijde "wicked" milieuproblemen met grote kennisleemten en onzekerheden van nut zijn. Wel verliest de KBA dan iets van de gebruikelijke functie als rekenmethode. Naarmate de problematiek complexer is en de onzekerheden groter zijn, is het nut van de maatschappelijke KBA vooral gelegen in het feit dat deze een bestuurlijk kader biedt om kennis over de aard van de milieuproblemen en de daarbij geldende belangen te verkrijgen. Deze kennis betreft niet alleen technisch-wetenschappelijke kennis over de processen en systemen die ten grondslag liggen aan de milieuproblematiek, maar ook de kennis over voorkeuren van de verschillende belanghebbenden en over eventuele belangentegenstellingen. Bij extreme onzekerheden en risicomijding kan het voorzorgbeginsel als rationele strategie bij de afweging van kosten en baten gelden.
