A Contingent Valuation Method for Determining the Intangible Costs of Development-Induced Displacement

Detta är en C-uppsats från Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för nationalekonomi

Sammanfattning: This thesis presents a method for determining earlier overlooked costs of development-induced displacement, to be used in the cost-benefit analysis framework. More precisely, the method aims to determine asset-and-income loss complementary, ex post willingness-to-accept for the first year of displacement. The method was developed within the contingent valuation framework and was thus implemented as a survey. Implementation was conducted in the Damnak Troyung resettlement site, by interviewing displacees from the Boeung Kak lake area, in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The method was evaluated on the dimensions of method reliability, usability, and practicability. It is concluded that although the method needs further testing and improvement, it represents an advance toward determining all costs of development-induced displacement.
