Modern cost–benefit analysis of hydropower conflicts

Modern Cost–Benefit Analysis Of Hydropower Conflicts / ed. by Johansson and P.-O. Kriström, B. Edward Elgar, June 2011, 240 p., ISBN 978 1 84980 880 4

Description :
This important book sheds light on the ways in which modern tools of welfare economics can be used to assess the benefits and costs of resource conflicts involving hydropower. The chapters highlight key methodological issues in this area; ranging from the intersection between cost–benefit analysis and behavioral economics, to the value of load balancing services provided by hydropower. The inclusion of insights from expert contributors from both sides of the Atlantic brings a unique and interesting range of viewpoints to the work.
