Workshop - Value Tool from CRC WSC

The CRC for Water Sensitive Cities is running a a training workshop in Parramatta focused on applying the Investment Framework For Economics of Water Sensitive cities (INFFEWS) Value Tool (WP2) developed under the CRCWSC’s Comprehensive Economic Evaluation Framework project (IRP2). 

The updated INFFEWS Value Tool (new version) now has approximately 1500 non market and market values related to benefits of urban water and environmental management investments.  All valuation studies included in this database have undergone a thorough review process to ensure the values are robust.  The workshop will develop a better understanding of how to use the INFFEWS Value Tool and how to adjust available information (values) to a particular context.

The training workshop content will include:

  • Discussion on the importance of including non market values in Benefit Costs Analysis and business cases development

  • Demonstration on how to navigate the tool and obtain relevant values for the project you want to evaluate

  • Discussion on the various benefit transfer methods, and how to select suitable studies

  • Practical session on conducting benefit transfer using a water-related project as an example

The training is being offered to water sector professionals who are involved in economics, project evaluation, or business case development for a water sensitive or environmental management related project.  Attendees should belong to a CRCWSC Participant organisation (or from an organisation in the process of joining the CRCWSC).  The training is free, but limited, and you must register your attendance using the below link.
