The Sustainable Development Methodology helps policymakers and other users assess multiple development and climate impacts across the environmental, social and economic dimensions. These may include air pollution reduction, job creation, improved health, access to energy, poverty reduction, protection of ecosystems, and more. 

The methodology can help advance policies that contribute to multiple Sustainable Development Goals and priorities, build support for climate actions by assessing impacts most relevant to national audiences, and inform policy design and implementation to maximize positive impacts and avoid or address unintended impacts. The methodology is applicable to all sectors, policies and actions.
