Abstract
    The Benefits of Flood and Coastal Risk Management: A Handbook of Assessment Techniques. This is intended to be a stand-alone "How to do it" guide to assessing the benefits of flood and coastal erosion risk management. The Handbook aims to provide a step-by-step approach to the techniques and information needed to undertake evaluation of the benefits for most straightforward risk management projects (probably 75-80% of all cases) and to offer a greater understanding of the principle that for most cases appraisal effort should be proportionate to the scale and scope of the decisions required.
    The Handbook should be sufficient to guide economic appraisal with the minimum of effort for the majority of flood and coastal erosion risk management projects. However, assessments are not always straightforward and and the Handbook is supplemented by a much more extensive Manual, colloquially termed the Multi-coloured Manual.
