Alexandra Humphrey Cifuentes


Alexandra is an economist with a focus on urban economics. She applies economics to challenges and opportunities posed by urban growth and climate change across water, liveability, health and other urban infrastructure. This includes assisting private and public sector clients with a range of policy, regulatory and commercial issues, including economic assessments and governance solutions.

In particular, Alexandra provides regulatory, investment economics and cost recovery advice to a variety of clients around Australia. She has significant experience in undertaking investment evaluation (including real options analysis) across a range of sectors (such as water, transport, liveability and health) in line with best practice and key guidelines. This includes: leading the team developing the Lower Hunter Water Security Plan for Hunter Water; undertaking an evaluation of integrated land use and water cycle management options in the Western Parkland City; providing advice to Infrastructure NSW on cost recovery options for the Western Parkland City and developing a framework for monetising the health benefits of water industry investments for WSAA.

Alexandra is experienced in drafting documents suitable for a range of audiences, including regulatory submissions from a range of organisations and business cases consistent with State and Commonwealth Treasury and Assurance process requirements (such as the Western Parkland City (South Creek Catchment) Land and Water Use Strategic Options Business Case and assisting INSW in developing its submission to the Infrastructure Australia Priority List).
