Summary/Abstract: Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic provides subsidies for investment projects of agricultural holdings mainly through Rural Development Programme of the Czech Republic for years 2014-2020. As the finances are public the projects for funding should be selected knowing their social costs and benefits, and hence efficiency and feasibility. For this purpose Costs Benefit Analysis (CBA) is recommended. The projects financed from RDP had not been selected based on CBA before. There is a need to evaluate the externalities related to the projects and establish their prices which will be used when the farmer prepares application for subsidy. The aim of the article is to prepare the methodological field for the valuation of externalities.
