What "Sustainable Cost Benefit Analysis (SCBA)" will bring you

Sustainability is the challenge of our time. That is why it is important to know whether and how new activities contribute to sustainability. The evaluation method "Sustainable Cost Benefit Analysis" is aimed at this.
Project owners can use the SCBA tool to assess their projects. The first steps of this method are very simple. Project owners determine which aspects of sustainability their project will most probably contribute to while they also estimate which impacts their projects may have on landscape and biodiversity and broad well-being. Project owners can compare and discuss their scores with others, and in that process optimize their project’s sustainability impact.
In later steps, project owners can use SCBA to seriously calculate the return on their investments in terms of sustainability: how big are the benefits compared to the costs?
A region (province, municipality, water board) that has a mission based policy on sustainable development and broad well-being can use the database of evaluated projects. A region can then assess to which extent the different aspects of sustainability, ecosystem services and broad well-being are covered by the combination of projects in their region. Founded on analysis of a series of projects it can discover what works best in their region. Which type of interventions yield the highest sustainability return? Grounded in this analysis regional policy instruments may be adapted to make mission based policies more effective.
