    CBA is, if practicable, the evaluation approach of choice. The various steps distinguished in a CEA are described below: Step 1:Define the objective involved. Step 2: Determine the extent to which the objective is met. Step 3: Identify sources of pollution and impacts now and in the future over the appropriate time horizon.   This is a method commonly employed in environmental economics, where a range of approaches have been applied to value policy outcomes, including: travel cost method; hedonic price method; and the contingent valuation (CV) approach [16–18]), with the latter becoming increasingly popular in the economic evaluation of healthcare programmes Cited by: Social cognitive theory (SCT), used in psychology, education, and communication, holds that portions of an individual's knowledge acquisition can be directly related to observing others within the context of social interactions, experiences, and outside media influences. This theory was advanced by Albert Bandura as an extension of his social learning theory. with each choice.
