Call for Papers Special Issue: Cost Benefit Analysis for Regional Sustainable Development Projects

Guest editor

Chiara F. Del Bo (Università degli Studi di Milano)

Deadline for full submissions: March 1st, 2024

The multifaceted long run challenges facing Europe and the world today, and in the years to come, require new and ambitious public policies, especially with respect to their contribution to achieving environmental sustainability. At the same time, it is crucial to identify, develop and use sound methods to assess the impact, efficiency and success of these policies. The regional impact and costs of public interventions and investment is also increasingly relevant and should receive attention by practitioners and academics alike.

Against this backdrop, the aim of this Special Issue is to consider the issue of policies stimulating sustainable development at the regional level, through the lenses of Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA). This entails considering the social costs and benefits of environmentally relevant projects and policies by focusing on the regional dimension of both implementation and impact. Contributions could present full-fledged CBA, analysis performed by applying similar methods, such as, for example, multicriteria analysis, or zoom in on the cost or benefit side from a social and territorial perspective.
