Cost-benefit analysis is a recognised decision support tool with increasing importance in policy making. This publication is a proposal for a stat-of-the-art guideline for cost-benefit analysis in the waste management sector. One of the aims is to provide insight in life cycle assessment in order to improve the system analysis and the assessment of environmental effects in a cost-benefit analysis, thus combining key elements from these two decision support tools.



Defining objective and scope

The decision on what to study and the scope of the analysis will affect the entire analysis and thereby the conclusions. Hence, there is plenty of reason why it is worth spending time and efforts in preparing the analysis carefully.
