Developing countries exploring pathways to climate compatibility


MAPS Co-benefits Lab

From the 7th to the 9th of May, MAPS team members from Latin America, India and South Africa met in Bogotá, Colombia, to explore developmental co-benefits associated with mitigation actions.

This workshop tackled the question of how climate change policies can benefit socio-economic development. Decision-makers and researchers have tried to understand so-called “co-benefits” of public policies for emissions reductions for a couple of years. Understanding the climate policies and their co-benefits is necessary when it comes to choosing nationally appropriate mitigation actions, which can qualify for international support under the United Nation’s Framework Convention of Climate Change.
