Proklima advises the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development

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), the project supports the German government in all bilateral and multilateral processes related to the Montreal Protocol.

Proklima supports the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through technical and policy advice and participates in meetings and conferences of the Montreal Protocol such as the Meeting of the Parties (MOP), the Open Ended Working Group (OEWG) and ExCom. Through publications and events, it informs both the professional audience and the general public about latest developments on sustainable cooling and future-friendly natural refrigerants. One of its lighthouse activities is the "Cool Training" course about the save handling of natural refrigerants for trainers, technicians and policy makers from around the world. It is offered several times a year in cooperation with the professional training institute Bundesfachschule Kälte-Klima-Technik (BFS) in Germany.
