Overview

In benefit cost analysis, all effects must be expressed in monetary terms—thus downplaying the importance of non-market values such as environmental quality. Aimed at researchers, elected officials, and professional planners, this text presents alternative approaches to the evaluation of urban planning options that take non-market values into account. It contains 16 contributions from international specialists explaining how methodologies such as effectiveness-cost and multicriteria analysis have been applied in developing special- issue plans, complex regional development strategies, and efforts to analyze the environmental justice aspects of major infrastructure projects. Some of the papers were originally presented at a 2003 workshop held at IUAV University in Venice, Italy. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
