The aim of this report is to provide an overview of cost-benefit analysis and outline a framework for its application to improving community and critical infrastructure resilience to future EILD events across Europe. To this end the report will: • Present the background and context to the LIQUEFACT project; • Describe the background to cost-benefit analysis and review its application in disaster mitigation; • Outline a generic cost-benefit framework for evaluating mitigation options to improve community and critical infrastructure resilience to EILD events; • Present alternative approaches which could be used as part of the LIQUEFACT RAIF; • Outline the process for integrating cost-benefit analyses into the LRG; • Summarise the key issues that will need to be considered by the LIQUEAFCT project partners as they use cost-benefit analysis to evaluate potential mitigation actions to improve community and critical infrastructure resilience to EILD events. The framework presented in the report should be considered a work in progress which will be amended and modified throughout the duration of the LIQUEFACT project to reflect emerging issues identified by project partners, the International Advisory Board (IAB) and any location specific characteristics of the case study sites identified by the external stakeholders. Goal: This document aims to provide the project partners and researchers with an overview of cost-benefit analysis and presents alternative approaches that could be applied to evaluate the potential of mitigation actions to improve community resilience to EILD events.
