Numerous studies undertaken to date generally assess the viability of various options for projects using a standard economic cost benefit analysis under existing climate conditions. This then provides a decision support tool for policy makers and managers in the selection of suitable alternatives. Climate change has resulted in a complication to this assessment process, as the expected damages and impacts will vary over time. This paper reviews one particular method that was adopted recently in the Solomon Islands, and determines its applicability to other projects.
