  • Multi-criteria impact analysis for each proposed policy, demonstrating, e.g., economic, social, and environmental development benefits, mitigation potential, market readiness, resiliency to climate change

The following steps can assist in selection of policies that support deployment goals to be analyzed in the next step and inform how to tailor these policies to differing country contexts.

  • Define policy goals for the country
  • Clarify technical and market scope of policy or program
  • Identify how it builds on and complements existing policies or programs
