Due to sustainable development and climate literature, the co-benefits approach can be understood as the studying, implementing and replicating of positive externalities of an action. Aayushi Awasthy and Kavya Bajaj (TERI), COBENEFITS Focal Point India, highlight that the co-benefits approach presents itself as an exceptionally apt mainstreaming practice for initiating such an approach, where resources can be pooled to streamline multiple goals towards sustainable development. The authors underline that India needs to focus on three vital fronts—energy access, valuable employment generation, and ensuring basic environmental services for all.
