Course Overview

The techniques of project financial and economic analysis and impact assessment are becoming increasingly important as methods of choosing between projects where resources, both financial and human, are limited.

The use of recognised assessment techniques for project proposals has become mandatory as part of the selection and justification process for projects funded by the international financial institutions such as the World Bank, the African, Asian and Inter-American Development Banks as well as regional banks and other donor agencies.

This course is designed around the areas of project planning, investment appraisal, social cost-benefit analysis, project risk, distributional effects and impact assessment. It has a emphasis on development projects, which are wholly or partially funded from the public sector.
