Reflections and Learnings from Co-Impacts Assessment under the MAPS Programme

The authors acknowledge two key underlying contextual considerations in this analysis that frames the work that underpins this paper. Firstly, the existence of a dominant approach to climate mitigation work in developing countries which implicitly places the non-climate benefits of any action as secondary to the primary benefit of climate change mitigation, and secondly, the artificial separation of policy formulation and implementation. Practitioners are encouraged to reflect on the implications of these considerations moving into the future.
