The aim of this note is to introduce the special issue on "Mega-projects and regional development in the Italian experience" and to review some of the critical issues associated with the evaluation of mega-projects. In particular, we focus on the shortcomings of Cost-Benefit Analysis when the project is large and when network effects are not negligible, and we propose further research on risk assessment and time discounting for long term and risky investments.
Keywords: Project appraisal, transport megaprojects, regional development
