The COBENEFITS Approach of Strategic Co-Benefit Assessments

With its co-benefit assess­ment stud­ies, the COBENEFITS project explores how ambi­tious domes­tic renew­able ener­gy and cli­mate change mit­i­ga­tion tar­gets will be sup­port­ive of oth­er social and eco­nom­ic per­for­mance tar­gets of gov­ern­ments and min­istries in the part­ner coun­tries. This paper describes the project process, divid­ed in 1. Selec­tion and Pri­or­i­ti­za­tion of Co-Ben­e­fits, 2. Ref­er­ence Pol­i­cy Sce­nar­ios (Cli­mate and Ener­gy) and 3. Research Capac­i­ty and Needs Assessment.
