article description
Innovative financing solutions for public infrastructure megaprojects require new approaches to assess the various financing portfolios being proposed. This paper discusses a range of international financing models and presents a new multi- criteria appraisal framework for assessing alternative ways of raising capital. The proposed framework combines elements of a multi-criteria analysis and cost benefit analysis, and incorporates both monetary and intangible impact measures to facilitate the selection of a financing approach that is in society’s best interest.
