Learn more about 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.
(Download the presentation at the end of this page)
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 online event presents possible interactions between the Paris Agreement and the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, with a focus on HFC mitigation activities and the transition to Green Cooling. Experts discuss how pilot activities can be conceptualised in this regard. Different aspects and key approaches to harness synergies between the two regimes are analysed using concrete country cases as examples.
The online event was held during the (virtual) 32nd Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol.
