Coastal Storm Risk Management National Economic Development Manual
This manual is intended to serve as a comprehensive guide for calculating National Economic Development (NED) benefits for Hurricane and Coastal Storm Damage Prevention Studies described in Section IV, Appendix E of the Planning Guidance Notebook (PGN) (Engineer Regulation ER 1105-2-100, 2000). The title of the manual, Coastal Storm Risk Management, has been changed from the original National Economic Procedures Manual: Coastal Storm Damage and Erosion, (IWR Report 91-R-6, 1991) to reflect a broader focus on risk management.

National Economic Development Procedures Manual: Recreation, Volume II - A Guide for Using the Contingent Value Methodology in Recreation Studies
This report is designed to assist Corps planners in using the contingent value method (CVM) for the economic evaluation of NED recreation benefits. CVM along with the Travel Cost Method (TCM) are the techniques recommended in Principles and Guidelines for evaluating the economic benefitsfrom the recreational components of Federal water resources investments. For the preparation of this manual, CVM was applied to three case studies of actual Corps District recdreation projects. These case studies proved invaluable to understanding the advantages, weaknesses, difficulties, and potential pitfalls of the CVM. In addition, the case studies provided the basic information presented in the examples used in this report. The chapters of this report are arranged in the basic order necessary to conduct a CVM analysis. Chapter 1 covers the concepts and background of CVM as an economic evaluation technique. Succeeding chapters cover the basic areas of: sampling; quewstionnaire design; survey design (including estimates of survey costs); data analysis proceedures and techniques; and, the evaluation of NED benefits. Several examples are used to illuminate the basic process required to correctly apply CVM. Included as an appendix is the list of CVM questionnaires approved by OMB for Corps planning purposes.

National Economic Development Procedures Manual: Recreation Volume III, A Case Study Application of Contingent Value Method For Estimating Urban Recreation Use and Benefits
The purpose of this report is to illustrate through case study description, the practical application of the CVM method to recreation evaluation in an actual planning study. The case study description is meant to serve as a practical guide and, therefore, emphasizes what was done more than the conceptsbehind the techniques used. It is not intended to be a detailed guide of the entire planning process, but reather highlights the activities or outcomes from this process that involved the development, conduct, and appllication of the CVM analysis. Specific objectives of this manual are: to illustrate an urban application of the CVM method to recreation demand and benefit estimation, to illustrate the development of regional valuation models, and to describe the potential transferability of the proceedures and/or findings of this case study to other planning applications.

National Economic Development Procedures Manual: Recreation Volume IV
This is the fourth of a series of manuals designed to provide recreation evaluation procedures to further implement the "Principles and Guidelines" of the U.S. Water Resources Council. The emphasis of the first three volumes of this series was, primarily, on the evaluation of providing new or additional facility developments. This manual emphasizes the evaluation of qualitative differences in the recreation experience. The primary purpose of this manualis to describe procedures and methodologies for valuating changes in recreation use values that result from management decisions impacting on recreation facilities and services and on the related natural resource base.

National Economic Development Procedures Manual: Urban Flood Damage Volume II
This is the second in a series of manuals designed to provide procedures and techniques to measure flood damage and to further implement the "Principles and Guidelines" of the U.S. Water Resources Council. This manual is a primer for conducting comprehensive flood damage and related surveys. It explains how basic principles of survey research can be applied to data collection for flood damage studies. Two prototype questionnaires (one face-to-face and one mail with a preliminary telephone supplement) are presented. Examples from previous applications of these questionnaires provide insight as to how they may be adapted and implemented for flood damage studies.

National Economic Development Procedures Manual: Overview Manual for Conducting National Economic Development Analysis
This manual provides an overview of the national economic development (NED) principle that is essential to determine whether the Federal government will construct any water resource project. The NED principle articulates a framework to assist in making this decision. Analysts working within this framework and decision makers who must understand it are the manual's intended audience.

National Economic Development Procedures Manual: Deep Draft Navigation
This manual is one of a series of guides to computing National Economic Development (NED) benefits of Federal water resources development projects. Basic guidance for NED evaluation is contained in the U.S. Water Resources Council's "Economic and Environmental Principles and Guidelines for Water and Related Land Resources Implementation Studies" (P&G). The two purposes of this manual are to explain the concept and application of NED evaluation to harbor project sponsors, and to assist the individuals who perform evaluation studies to comply with P&G requirements expeditiously. The evaluation procedures described in the manual apply to a wide range of harbor and waterway projects where sponsors cost-share studies and project implementation. The procedures are designated "Deep Draft Navigation" in the P&G,but apply to all commercial navigationprojects not are partof the "Inland Waterways System". The manual covers theoretical and practical aspects of benefits evaluation, provides sources of information to identify and estimate future project use, and contains examples of benefit calculations.

National Economic Development (NED) Manuals (Online)
You will find this web-published manual different enough from other U.S. Army Corps of Engineer Manuals that it warrants a welcome rather than an introduction. Publishing on the web opens a vast array of resources and offers a variety of media. It also enables you, the reader, to go as deeply as you like into a topic or to merely skim its surface. It is a much more active sort of document than a traditional manual.

National Economic Development Procedures Manual: Primer
As the Corps of Engineers strives to improve its planning and decision making, economic analysis is one of its most reliable and important tools. A critical element of successful economic analysis is communication with others—in gathering data, making assumptions, developing models and presenting results. This Economics Primer presents the rudiments of the science of economics and its use in the Corps of Engineers.
