Cost-benefit analysis (CBA) provides a framework for consistent and rational decision making. It can assist the appraisal of marine safety and environmental measures, such as those recommended by the Donaldson Report. Combined with other techniques, e.g., risk assessment, and noting the particular features of the maritime context, CBA is a valuable aid to thinking. The Department of Transport's (United Kingdom) towing study is using it to weigh the pros and cons of deploying tugs to protect the United Kingdom coast from oil and chemical pollution.
