Cost Benefit Analysis Forum 2022


From: Tuesday July 19, 2022, 8:15 am

To: Tuesday July 19, 2022, 6:00 pm

We are delighted to be holding the 2022 CBA Forum as a one-day in-person event in the Sydney CBD on Tuesday 19th July.

This is an opportunity to meet, re-engage with and learn from colleagues, peers and industry experts, as well as enjoy serendipitous interactions with new faces in the coffee queue.

Experts in the theory, policy and application of CBA are featured as speakers and panellists in an exciting program covering topical issues on the role, application and future of CBA. This includes: new national and NSW CBA guidance; discount rate changes; the 2022 US Society of Benefit Cost conference; and practical CBA examples.

As public calls for accountability and a strong evidence base for decisions continues to climb, the event will be of interest to experienced practitioners, those new to developing CBAs and people who rely on CBAs for supporting decision-making.

For people new to CBA, we will include a three hour “Introduction to CBA” preliminary session, based on NSW Treasury Guidelines, in the lead up to the forum. The date for this session is confirmed as Friday 15 July with an approximate time of 11am until 2pm, to be held via Zoom.  Be sure to register your interest when booking if you would like be part of this separate session.

The forum is designed as an in-person event. On-line attendance will be available for Economic Society members who are unable to attend in-person or if in-person capacity is filled.  Please note your preference when registering.

The event will follow the venue’s Covid Safe guidelines - participants need be double vaccinated.
