Summarising and presenting the impacts

For all of the options you analyse (including the ‘no EU action’ option), you need to consider all the relevant positive and negative impacts alongside each other, regardless of whether they are expressed in qualitative, quantitative or monetary terms. Thinking in terms of costs-and benefits of the various options provides a powerful framework for the analysis. The three most relevant methods for comparing options that can be used in this respect are cost-benefit analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, and multi-criteria analysis.
