This thesis proposes solutions to assist agencies in optimising their contribution to regional development. It develops a technique of project appraisal that is both theoretically sound and of practical use. The objective is to help policy makers and practitioners to appraise, monitor and evaluate regional policy projects. A review of theory and practice examines how various schools of economic thought assess the case for regional economic policy. The thesis argues that the context for evaluation has grown more complex and demanding, as regional policy moves away from simple job creation and tackles a greater variety of goals and objectives.
