PROJECT APPRAISAL AND FINANCING

The era of nineties has created a new breed of entrepreneurs whose quest for finance is unending. The lending institutions, on the other hand, have become choosy due to, among other reasons, mounting Non-performing Assets (NPAs). All this has led to increased pressure on the availability of finance to the entrepreneurs. In this setting, careful consideration of Project Appraisal and Financing holds the key to survival. Designed in this context, the book begins with explaining the project’s fundamentals—features, identification, and project life cycle. It goes on to explain and analyze project formulation, appraisal of promoters and management, market appraisal, technical appraisal, financial appraisal, project report, institutional risk assessment and financing decision. The book also focuses on the concepts of project management, overruns, post-completion performance evaluation and contemporary issues like infrastructural financing, and environmental impact assessment. All through the book, the emphasis is on critical analysis and decision-making. Primarily intended for the students of MBA/PGDM/PGDBM and other allied courses such as MFC and MBE, the book will also be of immense value to the students of CA, CWA, CS, CFA, CPA and CAIIB. Besides, it will be equally beneficial for the executive development and in-company training programmes on project appraisal and financing. Project finance executives in consulting firms and lending institutions and banks will also be benefited from the book due to its practical orientation.

Cost benefit Analysis and Project Appraisal in Developing Countries

The techniques and methods of project appraisal in developing countries have been considerably expanded and refined since they were first introduced in the late 1960s. This up-to-date and authoritative survey volume demonstrates the ways in which cost-benefit analysis has developed in response to changes in economic circumstances and conditions over the past three decades. An international group of academic and professional economists covers areas including problems in the practical application of cost-benefit techniques by international agencies, the treatment of income distribution, discounting, the effects method, the logical framework as a complement to project appraisal, aid tying, risk criteria in decision making, benefit valuation in the water sector, the appraisal of technical assistance projects, privatization in transition economies and shadow pricing in transition economies.

Engineering Project Appraisal

Today, practicing engineers need to understand the economic, environmental and social contexts of a development project and be able to resolve problems that arise in these areas. Accredited professional engineering courses (including SARTOR approved courses) now require students to develop an awareness of the economic, financial, social and environmental factors of a development project, along with an understanding of risk analysis and quality systems. Therefore, to be successful, engineering projects must be properly planned and those plans assessed and evaluated on their merits. This book provides details on the evaluation techniques required to assess project plans, and information on both economic and non-economic methods of project appraisal. Working examples and case studies are given to illustrate the applicability of each set of techniques. Engineering Project Appraisal will prove an invaluable and informative guide for both students and practitioners involved in the area of engineering project planning.

Project Appraisal and Macroeconomic Policy

Environmental economics addresses the issues that arise on the boundaries between economic systems and natural systems, such as pollution and natural resource de pletion and degradation.

Project Appraisal and Macroeconomic Policy

Environmental economics addresses the issues that arise on the boundaries between economic systems and natural systems, such as pollution and natural resource de pletion and degradation. Like any other branch of applied economics, it has drawn its tools and techniques from the wide range already available in economics gener ally, selecting, adapting and extending these to meet its own particular requirements in its own particular context. Here, as elsewhere in economics, public policy analy sis requires quantitative assessments of the economic impact of different policy choices. Perhaps the most distinctive contribution of environmental economics has been the development of techniques for the economic valuation of environmental goods and services in the absence of markets for such goods and services, or in the presence of markets that are at best imperfect or incomplete. Nevertheless policy analysis still relies on one or another of three broad groups of methods used in eco nomics generally. One is project appraisal, which at the micro level provides an evaluation ofthe costs and benefits ofinvestment options to inform the choice among them, while at the macro level policy analysis rests either on computable general equilibrium (CGE) models or on economy-wide macroeconometric models. All models are simplifications, designed to focus attention on the important fea tures ofthe problem at hand, and neglecting other features that might for a different problem assume greater importance.
