Event description

Description

New standardised tool - state of knowledge of non-market values and how to assign benefit transfer

Seminar and workshop to customise tool for SA practitioners

Program

The Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) is developing an economic evaluation framework to identify and quantify economic, environmental and community values of investments in water sensitive practices and systems. The project will deliver an evaluation framework and tool that users will apply to business case development and decision making at multiple levels in public and private sector organisations. The framework will help in better decision making to achieve water sensitive, liveable and resilient cities.

This seminar and workshop will provide an update of the urban water economics tools and guidelines emerging from the CRCWSC to date and an opportunity to provide feedback on how the tools can be customised to best meet the needs of SA WSUD practitioners.
