Cost benefit analysis (CBA) is an economic tool; a systematic approach used to assess the value to the community of investments, policy and regulatory changes. It involves comparing the costs of an action (monetary or otherwise) with its expected social, environmental and economic benefits (monetary or otherwise) with the ultimate goal of determining the feasibility and value of that action.
In simpler terms, a CBA answers the question, "what is the value to the community of this proposed change?"
