Title: Economic appraisal and assessment of benefits in the PR04 environment programme : findings of an environment agency seminar, January 2003
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
This report presents the proceedings of a seminar that OXERA organised for the Environment Agency to present our work for peer review by leading academic economists and experts from the water industry, DEFRA, Welsh Assembly Government, Drinking Water Inspectorate, HM Treasury, Ofwat, RSPB and Watervoice. The purpose was to obtain their views to aid our work on benefits assessment not only for PR04 but looking forwards to the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD). The report describes our work on benefits assessment for PR04 in the context of the overall technical and economic appraisals for PR04. The Agency then reports specific comments made by individual peer reviewers and provide a synthesis of points made at the seminar. This highlights important points for our work on benefits for PR04 as well as suggestions for research needs for the future in respect of the implementation of the WFD.
