CoBenefits in India

Based on capacity needs assessments, bilateral meetings with major stakeholders and co-benefits council workshop conducted in 2017, the following political priorities and co-benefits were identified by major political stakeholders and leading research institutions in India:

  • Co-benefit 1: Energy access (cost saving and other opportunities)
  • Co-benefit 2: Future development of employment in the power sector, skills and education needed (employment opportunities)
  • Co-benefit 3: Health benefits related to less carbon-intensive power sector (health-related opportunities)

These are currently explored in more detail in research projects by national knowledge partner in country specific cobenefits assessment reports.
