Integrated area development projects aim to implement several socially or technologically innovative functions in the same area. The assessment of costs and benefits of these projects brings together multiple stakeholders who belong to different disciplines and have different--and sometimes conflicting--interests. Furthermore, calculating costs and benefits often depends on information that is not always readily available; and causation and outcome preferences are usually disputed among stakeholders. Under these circumstances, turning business ideas into business plans is challenging for stakeholders; particularly in integrated area development projects where there is a stronger technical and administrative interdependence between functions and stakeholders.
