Chilling Prospects 2022: Ashden's Fair Cooling Fund
Reflections on five years of the Kigali Amendment by Ashden
Ashden’s Fair Cooling Fund, made possible by the Clean Cooling Collaborative, has shown how targeted grant funding can drive holistic support for sustainable cooling innovators. In particular, grants can be designed to encourage organizations to reach new communities and end users, laying the foundations for wider cooling access.
Through the fund, Ashden has injected a total of USD 600,000 into seven frontline cooling organizations around the world. Three of these innovators offer access to sustainable cold chain, and four support cooler homes and streets. In 2019 Ashden worked with these partners to co-create sustainable, affordable solutions targeting people in greatest danger from rising temperatures. These initiatives were launched in 2020.
