As an international group of practitioners, academics and others who are working to improve the theory and application of the tools of benefit-cost analysis (BCA), SBCA welcomes submissions that support the enhanced use of such analysis to promote evidence-based decision making. BCA is defined broadly, including cost analysis, cost effectiveness analysis, risk-benefit analysis, applied welfare economics, damage assessment and other methods. The conference welcomes submissions on topics closely related to BCA such as non-market valuation, discounting, equity, social policy, regulation, implementation of BCA, etc., and applications to any public policy area, such as environment, transport, health, energy, etc., are encouraged.
