Beyond moral and human rights arguments for a muti-dimensional approach, there are practical reasons for focusing on economic and social co-benefits, for both men and women, as they are critical to help secure national and community support for activities that contribute to climate change mitigation, and ensure their long-term viability. The success of many climate change measures depends in large part on the acceptance and use of new products, infrastructure facilities, and ways of doing business, so an analysis of what benefits are available for both men and women as a result of a project can be a critical factor in its success or failure.
