COST-BENEFIT ANALYSIS OF SHORE PROTECTION INVESTMENTS

Luis Felipe Vila Ruiz, Fernando Bernaldo de Quiros

Abstract


The paper describes the methodology established in Spain to assess shore protection investments. The method consists of two phases: a pre-assessment based on physical and economic indicators and an assessment in which the financial, economic and social appraisals are estimated using cost-benefit analysis techniques. The paper also contains the preparatory works to create a data-base necessary to establish a demand-modelling.
