The stakeholder impacts of a project can be estimated by the comparison of the financial and economic impacts of the project on the key stakeholders of a project. This analysis allows one to estimate how the income changes caused by the project that are distributed across the key groups affected by the project. This analysis allow for a reconciliation of the financial, economic, and distributional aspects of a cost benefit analysis. It also identifies if the project does or does not address the principal social objectives of the society. This chapter covers how the benefits and costs associated with a project are identified and measured for the principal stakeholder groups in a country.
