Time Description Room / Location Level / Floor
Organizer: NOAA (Dr. Steve Montzka)
Description: Dr. Steve Montzka of the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory (USA), in coordination with Prof. Matt Rigby of the University of Bristol (UK), will summarize and update the scientific evidence for increasing global CFC-11 emissions and their cause.  

This presentation will focus particularly on new results from a recent paper (Rigby et al., Nature, 2019) that updates the global emission record through 2017 and attributes a portion of the emission increase to eastern China.
India Cooling Action Plan: Ambitious Actions to maximize climate benefits
Time Description Room / Location Level / Floor

Organizer: The Energy and Resources Institute

Description: Recently Govt. of India has launched the India Cooling Action Plan.The India Cooling Action Plan (ICAP) seeks to provide an integrated vision towards cooling across sectors encompassing inter alia reduction of cooling demand, refrigerant transition, enhancing energy efficiency, ensuring access to cooling and better technology options with a 20-year time horizon.
The ICAP provides short, medium- and long-term recommendations across different sectors while providing linkages with various programmes of the Government aimed at providing sustainable cooling and thermal comfort for all.

We would like to facilitate a discussion among the global cooling sector community on the India Cooling Action, specific to development process, its implementation etc.
For panel discussion we will have speakers from TERI, government of India ministries, Government departments and other stakeholders relevant form India Cooling Action Plan's development and its implementation perspective.
National Cooling Plans: linking cooling to energy efficiency interventions
Time Description Room / Location Level / Floor

Organizers: UNDP, Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP)

Description: Many countries are embarking on the development of National Cooling Plans that aim to increase energy efficiency while reducing the consumption of F-gases.

These plans can provide a long-term perspective for policies that can simultaneously address national cooling demands and the need to mitigate climate change. Cooling Plans can cover multiple sectors, including space cooling in buildings, manufacturing of cooling equipment, cold-chain logistics, and servicing sector.

The side event, co-hosted by UNDP and the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP), will provide perspectives from leading countries on their experience developing and publishing pioneering National Cooling Plans. The side event will also discuss the financial options to implement cooling efficiency.
