Policy advice, capacity building, awareness raising, and knowledge transfer are in the centre of Proklima’s activities. On behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), it supports the German government and is actively involved in meetings and conferences on the Montreal Protocol such as MOP, OEWG and ExCom. Through numerous publications and events, it informs both the professional audience and the general public about the latest developments of sustainable cooling. One of its lighthouse projects is the so-called Cool Training on the save handling of natural refrigerants for trainers, technicians and policy makers.

Preparations of the European F-gas regulation began as early as 2006. The official phase-out followed in 2014. In order to pass on this early experience, the EU, together with BMZ, supports seven countries in Latin America and the Caribbean in reaching their targets of ODS phase-out and early actions on HFC. The SPODS project is about policy advice, strategy development, training, new cooling technologies and much more. In this interview we ask Philip Owen, head of unit for Climate Finance, Mainstreaming, Montreal Protocol, four questions and talk about objectives, benefits and lessons learned.
