Developing countries often face acute pressures to deal simultaneously with conflicting policy goals. In a debate over the proposed resettlement of the village of Ban Pa Kluay, located in Ob Luang National Park in Chiang Mai Province in the Northern Region of Thailand, cost-benefit analysis resulted in the discovery of a compromise option involving neither resettlement nor complete nonintervention by the national government. Where equity and environmental concerns conflict, cost-benefit analysis can improve the quality of policymaking, but for it to fulfill its promise, the usefulness of the technique will need to be more broadly recognized by the public and by political actors.

Keywords:   Thailand, equity, conservation, Ob Luang National Park, resettlement, nonintervention
