Building New Alliances – Seizing Opportunities – Raising Climate Ambitions in the new energy world of renewables

In col­lab­o­ra­tion with nation­al knowl­edge part­ners in India, South Africa, Viet­nam and Turkey, the project elab­o­rates coun­try-spe­cif­ic co-ben­e­fits of cli­mate poli­cies, with empha­sis on the oppor­tu­ni­ties pre­sent­ed by renew­able pow­er gen­er­a­tion. With its polit­i­cal part­ners in gov­ern­ment depart­ments and agen­cies, COBENEFITS con­nects the social and eco­nom­ic oppor­tu­ni­ties of renew­able ener­gies to cli­mate change mit­i­ga­tion strate­gies. The COBENEFITS project con­tributes to build­ing strong alliances and low­er­ing polit­i­cal bar­ri­ers to revis­it and effec­tive­ly imple­ment Nation­al­ly Deter­mined Con­tri­bu­tions (NDC) to the 2015 Paris Agree­ment on Cli­mate Change.  The COBENEFITS project con­tributes to build­ing strong alliances and low­er­ing polit­i­cal bar­ri­ers to revis­it and effec­tive­ly imple­ment Nation­al­ly Deter­mined Con­tri­bu­tions (NDC) to the 2015 Paris Agree­ment on Cli­mate Change.
