This publication focuses on aspects of sustainability and the intersectorality of renewable energy deployment (synergies and trade-offs), with the aim of providing policy-makers with a conceptual framework to navigate them. More effective consideration of these aspects in policy-making can help maximize the benefits to society and the environment of the wide deployment renewable energy, and at the same time reduce any associated negative impacts. In the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, this approach can help achieve multiple SDGs simultaneously, while reducing multi-sectoral competition for natural resources which are increasingly under pressure due to increasing demands, climate change and widespread environmental degradation.
