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.




In recent years, debates on environmental policies have been marked by discussions whether cost-benefit analyses (CBA) are a suitable tool for gathering information on socio-economic impacts of a given action before political decision-making.
