    Abstract A co-benefits approach is a way to achieve several positive outcomes along multiple dimensions through a single policy. It is used in the climate change literature to refer to policies simultaneously addressing global warming as well as local development priorities. Local legal contexts vary widely from one place to another. Understanding the legal context can help remove barriers or tap opportunities at the early stage of the policymaking process, and enable the adoption of co-benefits strategies. Classifying laws and regulations according to their outcomes enhances the visibility of potential co-benefits and hence fosters evidence-based policymaking. Some areas of policymaking are particularly wellsuited to a co-benefits approach; yet achieving co-benefits will often depend on the specific governance framework within which it is embedded.
