We are pleased to announce that our special issue of the Journal of Benefit-Cost Analysis, “Benefit-Cost Analysis in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: Methods and Case Studies” has been published and is available open-access. The introduction written by Lisa A. Robinson, James K. Hammitt, Dean T. Jamison, and Damian G. Walker provides an overview of the project and of the eight papers featured in this special issue. The first four papers discuss methods for addressing specific analytic components and the second four papers test the application of these methods to specific case studies. Together these papers create the basis for developing benefit-cost analysis reference case guidance, the final stage of a project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. We also invite you to visit our project website and submit comments and feedback on our draft; comments are due by March 29, 2019.
