Training - Cost Benefit Analysis for Urban Climate Adaptation
Urban areas are expected to become even more exposed and vulnerable to flooding and other consequences of climate change in the future. However, cost-effective planning of adaptation strategies is very complicated. Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) is a method that can help decision-makers evaluate adaptation projects and strengthen the basis for making sound investment decisions. A training will be held in Budapest (9-10/5/2019) which explains what CBA is and how it applies to urban flooding and climate change adaptation. If you are a local government or city official, this will help you identify whether it can be used for your adaptation project.
