Gruppo CLAS has developed for many years a robust, time-efficient methodology to assess the physical and economic effects of projects.
Gruppo CLAS has been performing cost benefit analysis since the beginning of the Nineties: this allowed to develop a reliable methodology, in line with the best international practices, and a wide repertoire of parameters necessary to evaluate physical and economic effects of projects. Gruppo CLAS can therefore offer highly scientific analysis in a very short time and with a great cost-result ratio.
Why is it important to perform a cost benefit analysis?
- It is a useful tool to evaluate the effects of development projects, and therefore to allocate little resources among different alternatives.
- It helps to consider the community and investor’s point of view. Not all investor’s costs and benefits are also costs and benefits for the community. A good cost benefit analysis can also help to manage public debate processes necessary to get stakeholders’ consent.
- It guarantees a greater transparency in the process of project selection and funding decisions.
- It is expressly requested by the European Regulation (UE) no. 1303/2013 to access funding provided by Structural Funds 2014-2020 for major projects.
