Project cost analysis is an important tool in understanding the functioning of the project. Project cost analysis gives the opportunity to plan and form optimal project budgets of the given or similar projects in the future instead of controlling the expenditure expediency and economic activity of the organisation overall. Cost analysis demonstrates to social sector participants, who are interested in the matter, approximate expenditure when realising the project on a local level. It is essential for the given organisation as well as for other organisations launching similar projects, because it gives the possibility to make project budget and/or give arguments for the resource support of the project (by the state, funds, donors).

The ultimate goal of the cost monitoring and project cost analysis is measuring the total cost of the project and average cost of similar projects, the study of the resources to widen corresponding activity on city and/or national level.

In the course of the webinar, we will get to know categorical apparatus used for the project cost analysis, data collection means and cost analysis methods. As an example we will examine cost calculation of the Project “The Programme of HIV prevention among young female commercial sex workers, injecting drug users, and risk group adolescents living or working in the street” in Zaporyzzha (the Programme is realised with support of UNICEF).
