Abstract
This thesis is designed to conduct a Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) for wetland development project on Vege river in Southern Sweden (Skåne). The overall objective of it is to depict cost and benefit relationship for proposed wetland alternatives and investigate the socio-economical feasibility of Vege river wetland project designed to overcome nutrients emission problem.

Using estimations of monetarised and non-monetarised benefit values and their comparison to the cost values specific to Vege wetland, the CBA study concludes that Vege wetland development can be socio-economically profitable if one considers the increasing potential value over the time. Most of all, this is relevant to nutrient reduction as well as with respect to... (More)
