Provides the sum of costs to actions and monitoring applied in a solution.

`getCost(x)`

The cost value is calculated as the sum of all the individual costs of actions and monitoring carried out in each of the planning units. This can be expressed mathematically for a set of planning units \(I\) indexed by \(i\), and a set of threats \(K\) indexed by \(k\) as:

$$ actions = \sum_{i \in I}\sum_{k \in K_i} x_{ik} c_{ik} $$

$$ monitoring = \sum_{i \in I} x_{i \cdot} c^{'}_{i} $$ Where, \(x_{ik}\) is the decisions variable that specify whether an action has been selected to abate threat \(k\) in planning unit \(i\) (1) or not (0), \(c_{ik}\) is the action cost to abate threat \(k\) in planning unit \(i\) and \(c^{'}_{i}\) is the monitoring cost of planning unit \(i\). The cost of monitoring is applied to all planning units where some type of action has been selected (conservation action, to abate threats or connectivity).

Note that there is an action per threat, so it is assumed that the index of the threat coincides with the index of the action used to abate it.
