According to projections, the annual consumption of climate-damaging fluorinated gases (F-gases) for cooling and air-conditioning is forecast to quadruple by 2030. The project aims to advance a comprehensive international system for controlling the use of fluorinated greenhouse gases, to pool and harmonise the work of the diverse initiatives and strengthen their cooperation. The strategic approach involves supporting six key partner countries in formulating their individual reduction contributions, introducing policies for transformation to lower emissions, and reducing barriers to the use of natural refrigerants and propellants. These efforts will serve to boost coordination of international initiatives. The activities focus on advising partner countries on policy and transformation processes, and reducing overlaps and parallel structures. Additional measures will help dismantle barriers to the introduction of F-gas alternatives as a prerequisite for developing and implementing INDCs.
