The purpose of this project is to summarize, in a way accessible to non-experts, some fundamental issues concerning the use of cost-benefit analysis in environmental policy making. We will focus on the judgement of whether or not to use monetary valuation in different contexts, and on possible alternatives to such valuation, with an emphasis on practical approaches to philosophically complex issues.
