The NDC Support Facility for Efficient, Climate-Friendly Cooling
About the NDC Support Facility
Launched in January 2020, the NDC Support Facility for Efficient, Climate-Friendly Cooling (NDC Support Facility) provides funding and guidance to organizations to support governments that want to integrate cooling solutions into the next round of their country’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), which are expected to be submitted during 2020.
The NDC Support Facility’s focus is to unlock the significant contribution that efficient, climate-friendly cooling solutions can make to climate and development goals, whilst simultaneously complementing the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, which aims to phase down super-polluting hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).
The NDC Support Facility has up to US$12 million available for technical assistance (TA) to improve access to and the efficiency of cooling in developing countries. Funding will be awarded to organizations that are able to provide TA and other forms of support to eligible Article 5 countries (including Kigali Amendment Group 2 countries, such as India) that are making new cooling commitments in their strengthened NDCs. Both countries and TA providers are welcome to submit proposals.
K-CEP hosted an information webinar on January 28 providing an overview of the facility. The slide deck has since been updated to reflect recent adjustments to the facility’s timeline and scoring criteria. Please view the updated slide deck here.
