Project Appraisal and Risk Analysis


Project appraisal is a cost and benefits analysis of different aspects of proposed project with an objective to adjudge its viability. A project involves employment of scarce resources. An entrepreneur needs to appraise various alternative projects before allocating the scarce resources for the best project. For appraising a project, its economic, financial, technical market, managerial and social aspects are analyzed. The effects of a project appraisal are long reaching and have very definite long term effects because of the capital investment that is always required in any project. Financial institutions carry out project appraisal to assess its creditworthiness before extending finance to a project.
In this context, one week training programme will focus on the best tools to manage the project appraisal process; identifying, and comparing significant evaluation methodologies ranging from social and developmental policies through environmental and stakeholder factors to the key mechanisms of economic and financial assessment; and systematically exploring the principal risk factors and other key issues that need to be considered in managing the planning of major, long-term, high-value projects.
