The National Program for Sustainable Irrigation (NPSI) required cost-benefit analyses to be undertaken on a number of its research investments from Phase 1 of the Program. Phase 1 of NPSI ran from July 2002 to June 2007.
Eleven investments from Phase 1 were identified by NPSI as having potential for analysis, and these 11 investments were scanned by Agtrans using six criteria to further determine their suitability for analysis. As a result, four investments (projects) were selected for cost-benefit analysis.
Information from the original project proposals, milestone reports (where appropriate), final reports and other relevant reports were assembled with assistance from the Program Management. Discussions were held with Principal Investigators for each project as well as users of the research outputs as appropriate.
