Value tool

Value the non-market benefits of your water sensitive project

The CRC for Water Sensitive Cities’ Value tool gives practitioners a way of valuing the benefits of water sensitive projects that are not traded in markets, such as the social and environmental benefits.

Obtaining a monetary value for non-market benefits is complex, and ideally requires conducting a primary non-market valuation study, which can be expensive and time-consuming. But if you don’t have the time or the resources to conduct a primary study, the Value tool can provide a reasonable approximation of the non-market benefits associated with an investment.

This comprehensive Excel-based database contains 2000+ non-market values of water sensitive systems and practices.

It is part of the Investment Framework for Economics of Water Sensitive Cities (INFFEWS) economic evaluation package, which also includes the Benefit cost analysis (BCA) tool.
