PVE versus cost-benefit analysis: contrasting the recommendations in the context of urban mobility investments

News - 28 January 2021 - Webredactie

Recently, a paper was published on the possible different policy recommendations that result of a Participatory Value Evaluation (PVE) and a Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) in the context of urban mobility investments. Niek Mouter, Paul Koster and Thijs Dekker investigated this on the basis of a PVE and various CBAs that were carried out for 16 urban mobility investment projects. The findings suggest indicative evidence that projects which focus on improving traffic safety and improvements for cyclists/pedestrians rank higher in the PVE, whereas car projects rank higher in the CBA analysis.
