Abstract
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. COBENEFITS enables international mutual learning and capacity building among policy makers, knowledge partners and multipliers on seizing the social and economic co-benefits of climate change mitigation, through Country-specific assessment reports of social and economic co-benefits of renewable power generation Training materials, online courses and face-to-face trainings on seizing co-benefits of renewable power generation Policy dialogue sessions on enabling political environments and overcoming barriers to seize the co-benefits Strategies to connecting co-benefits of climate change mitigation with climate action plans, the Paris Ambition Mechanism and MRV schemes to support national NDC implementation.
