Water Sensitive SA

Benefit cost analysis tool

The CRC for Water Sensitive Cities’ Benefit cost analysis tool compares the benefits of a water sensitive project with its costs, to assess whether it’s worthwhile.

You can use this Excel-based tool to:

  • develop a holistic business case for delivering water sensitive investments
  • assess investments for water sensitive cities
  • understand the distribution of costs and benefits between stakeholders.

It is part of the Investment Framework for Economics of Water Sensitive Cities (INFFEWS) economic evaluation package, which also includes the Value Tool.

The BCA Tool is flexible and easy to use

This structured and systematic process leads project stakeholders though key steps to define the project, identify project options, identify information requirements and gaps and undertake the BCA assessment.

It is based on sound economics and is fully consistent with Australian and state government economic assessment guidelines.
