Chilling Prospects

Chilling Prospects series

Chilling Prospects is a groundbreaking report series by SEforALL in partnership with and supported by the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP) as part of the Cooling for All initiative, which develops the reports along with contributions from the Global Panel on Access to Cooling.

Released in 2018, Chilling Prospects: Providing Sustainable Cooling for All was a global wake-up call – and was the first report to define and quantify the magnitude of the global cooling access challenge and call for new and sustained action to address the issue.

Chilling Prospects: Tracking Sustainable Cooling for All 2019 serves as a status update. It profiles fast action in access to cooling, provides an update on global access to cooling gaps, and provides policymakers, the private sector and development financiers with tools and guidance on how to accelerate progress on areas of priority.

Developed as part of the 2019 report, the Cooling for All Needs Assessment is a new tool that allows governments, NGOs and development institutions to accurately size the market for cooling demands based on comfort, safety, nutrition and health needs.
