II. FLOOD LOSS REDUCTION AND REVIEW OF PAST EXPERIENCES
F. Projects as case studies
2. Criteria for selectionIt can be seen that, in Bangladesh, post-project economic performance can indicate the success of a project in limiting its environmental consequences, both internal and external. This indicator has thereby been broadly adopted in this study to present case studies of successful and unsuccessful projects. It needs to be emphasized here that this does not imply that economic analysis is necessarily an adequate indicator for assessing project feasibility at planning stage.
The selected case studies represent the following:
- types of projects such as full/partial protection, large or small;
- typical environmental consequences both off and on the projects; and
- typical causes of success and failure.
