This publication is a product of the Cool Contributions fighting Climate Change (C4) Project implemented by GIZ Proklima. It is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag. The project supports an international control for F-gases in combination with increased energy efficiency in the refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) sector. It strengthens cooperation between various initiatives such as the UNFCCC and the Montreal Protocol by promoting a coordinated agreement and reducing overlaps. Furthermore, the project advises selected partner countries in formulating national GHG mitigation strategies in the refrigeration and air conditioning sector and thereby advancing their NDCs. The project runs from 2016 until 2021.
