Abstract

The goal of a proper project evaluation is to stop bad projects and to prevent good projects from being rejected. This book on Cost-Benefit Analysis for Investment Decisions is aimed at helping public officials and private analysts develop and evaluate investment projects to promote economic and social well-being of the country in question. The book proceeds from the formulation and definition of a project to the data requirements for an evaluation, then to the criteria used for accepting a good or rejecting a bad project from both the financial and the economic viewpoints, and finally to the analysis and management of many types of uncertainty faced by various stakeholders. These components are integrated into the analysis in a consistent manner. This chapter contains an overview of the book and of the components of such an integrated appraisal.
