Author(s) : Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (Bangladesh)

Type of monograph: Cooling plan


Cooling is a developmental need as well as a cross-sector requirement. In future, demand for cooling in Bangladesh will grow due to global warming, the rapid pace of economic growth, rising per capita income, population growth, and rapid urbanization. Against the backdrop of cooling as a growing developmental need and the international environmental agreements to which Bangladesh is a signatory, UNDP, on behalf of the national ozone unit of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, has initiated the production of a cooling plan that will resonate with stakeholders in the public and private sectors. It will also help move Bangladesh towards sustainable and smart cooling strategies, in accordance with the Montreal Protocol, to phase out HCFCs and phase down use of HFCs, while contributing to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
