English term or phrase: to be put to use both
Bonjour à tous,

Selon vous, dans le paragraphe suivant, à quoi se réfère le "both" ? J'aurais tendance à dire qu'il se rapporte aux "quantitative and qualitative approaches", mais je ne suis pas sûre étant donné l'éloignement important entre les deux éléments.

"Quantitative and qualitative approaches used to assess each indicator included calculating the change in electricity prices due to lower-cost generation; soliciting ratings of the relative reliability of various power plants from the off-taker, Kenya Power; and interviewing local community members about changes in their lives linked to the new power plant.
Comprehensively covering these impact channels allows the assessment to be put to use both to compare across different IPP projects, for example to identify best practices in engaging the local community, and to compare against the case where no new power plant is built at all."

Merci d'avance,

Claudia

Explanation:
Comprehensively covering these impact channels allows the assessment to be put to use both to compare across different IPP projects, for example to identify best practices in engaging the local community, and to compare against the case where no new power plant is built at all

It meants that these potential types of impact, if studied comprehensively, can serve 2 purposes : one to compare the different projects and the other to compare against not going ahead.

Si l'on tient compte de tous les différents élements, l'on devrait pouvoir mesurer les différents projets les uns par rapport aux autres (par exemple....) et l'on devrait également pouvoir comparer les différentes options par rapport aux résultats d'une non intervention.

Je ne vous offre pas la traduction, juste l'explication. Le 'both' se rapporte à ce qui suit....
