This article presents the results of an extensive documental research and literature review of worldwide procedures for economic project appraisal, and identifies best practices and state-of-the-art techniques in this area, as well as the criteria adopted in Brazil for this purpose. In the light of international benchmarks, it makes recommendations for improvements in the use of these methods in Brazil regarding the appraisal of safety measures, time savings benefits and social development that result from transportation-related infrastructure projects.
