Title: How can sustainable finance be leveraged to enhance access to cooling?
Description: As the world translates climate commitments into action, the cooling sector is offering a big mitigation opportunity. Equally, in global south, with low access to cooling, providing thermal comfort and raising cooling infrastructure is critical to development. National Cooling Action Plans, therefore, provide a much-needed impetus in that direction.
Finance is an enabler to bridge the action gap. Increasing access to cooling at scale will require investment in several areas. A combination of strategies will have to be formulated to get the right quantum of financing. What, how and how much finance will be required for sustainable cooling access in India is thus an important question.
This side event will be a platform to engage with international experts and government representatives to delve into aspects of sustainable finance, and how it can be made available for cooling.
