Ozone and climate protection is not just a European challenge but a global challenge. However, the European Union is considered a pioneer in F-gas regulation. In order to pass on this early experience, the EU, together with BMZ, supports countries in Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa in reaching their targets of ODS phase-out and early actions on HFCs.

The SPODS project (opens in a new window) in Latin America and the Caribbean as well as the ROCA project in Africa are about policy advice, strategy development, training, new cooling technologies and much more. While SPODS is ending after 3 years of successful cooperation, ROCA is just getting started.

Get insights in both projects and the European Green Cooling approach!
