Evaluation of health impacts in an environmental cost benefit analysis

In CONCAWE Review Vol. 14 No. 2, Autumn 2004, a general introduction was given to the cost benefit analysis methodology (CBA) in which the net economic cost of certain decisions is evaluated by expressing all costs and benefits in monetary terms.

This methodology was applied in the Clean Air For Europe (CAFE) programme which looks at future air pollution abatement measures in Europe.
