This paper aims to shed light on the role of economics in deciding what constitutes an appropriate climate change adaptation project. The economic methodology used is cost benefit analysis (CBA) and the basics of CBA are reviewed alongside a short discussion on where CBA fits in a policymaker’s toolbox. Two case studies are presented to demonstrate how CBA has been used to inform decision making processes associated with the SPC/USAID food security project.
