Many countries are not only in the process of ratifying the Kigali Amendment (KA) and tackling early actions on HFC phase-down. They are also in the process of updating their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement (PA) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). However, the first round of NDCs in 2015 evidenced that many countries did not take into account the mitigation potential of the refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) sector.

This side-event aims at presenting possible interactions between the Paris Agreement and the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, with a focus on hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) mitigation activities and the transition to Green Cooling. Experts will discuss how pilot activities can be conceptualised in this regard. Different aspects and key approaches to harness synergies between the two regimes will be analysed using concrete country cases as examples.

Join our side event on Tuesday, 24th November 2020, from 3:00 - 4:00 pm (UTC) / 4:00 - 5:00 pm (UTC+1 Berlin) / 6:00 - 7:00 pm (UTC+3 Nairobi)!
