Cost-effectiveness analysis of lasting measures in the water protection

Based on methodical beginnings available in the literature the project aimed at the development of suitable proceedings for cost-effectiveness analyses for the individual action fields of the water protection. In the project only the effects of individual measures, not however their use, should be quantified and evaluated monetarily. An emphasis of the work was the quantification of effects for the target ranges for which the definition of uniform yardsticks had been difficult so far: the improvement of the waters structure and the flood prevention. In case of the materials introductions, however, the standard of valuation was the reduction of the materials introduction in kg. The methodical works also concerned the uniform recording, assignment and definition of the costs, on which the evaluation has to be based.
