Briefing paper

15 Apr 2014
Description

The Enhancing Water Infrastructure Provision with Climate Change Uncertainty project investigated the use of alternative economic models for evaluating large public infrastructure investment projects (e.g. a desalination plant) when there is risk and uncertainty, and assesses appropriate policy options for water utilities, regulators and other government agencies. This brief presents a portion of the research relating to project evaluation. Insights can improve decisions relating to investment in water-supply infrastructure by accounting explicitly for climate variability and for prospective climate change. These insights can be applied to other capital-intensive long-term investment projects undertaken by government
