Measuring costs Comparing CE of different interventions Common pitfalls
The problem: Which costs are we talking about?
HD interventions involve a range of actors: the government, NGOs, clients (beneficiaries), affected non-clients
Cost of “free” volunteers or client time? Transfer payments (cash transfers)? Measurement of positive/negative externalities?
Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA)
Quantifies the benefits and costs of an activity, in the same metric (money)
o
to respond: is the intervention producing sufficient benefits to outweigh the costs? Is society richer after making this investment, and to inform the worth of a single intervention and compare interventions within and across sectors when benefits can be monetized.
