Abstract: The recent emphasis on partnership between the Federal government and local sponsors in the development of flood damage reduction projects has promoted considerable interest in the application of risk-based methods for project analysis. Project formulation by such an approach is generally considered to be more objective in establishing a good balance between cost and risk. This paper describes a risk and uncertainty method for project analysis.
