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 energy-efficient and climate-friendly cooling solutions into the next round of their country’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Updated every five years, NDCs form the foundation of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, and embody each country’s efforts to reduce national emission levels.

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).

After committing to include efficient, climate-friendly cooling solutions in their enhanced NDCs or long-term climate plan, K-CEP decided to support 10 countries with grants from the NDC Support Facility.

The countries – Jordan, Ethiopia, Cambodia, Viet Nam, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Pakistan, Morocco, Chile, and Tunisia – will all receive funding, via technical assistance providers, to improve the access to and/or efficiency of cooling in their respective countries.
