New article from BONUS MIRACLE presents a bottom-up approach to Environmental Cost-Benefit analysis.

While cost-benefit analyses (CBA) are usually applied in a top-down approach, this paper investigates the possible advantages, prerequisites and limitations of applying CBA in what may be considered an alternative, “bottom-up” manner. For two case catchments, it is demonstrated how CBA can be used in a participatory process to develop plans that are acceptable to the local society, and also shed light on possible distributional effects.
