On Thursday 7 November, in an official side event to the Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol, SEforALL will launch Chilling Prospects: Tracking Sustainable Cooling for All 2019.
Also on Thursday, 7 November 11:30 CET – 13:00, Sustainable Energy for All's Director of Partnerships Jim Walker will moderate a high-level roundtable on food cold chains. This will be the first MOP high-level roundtable during the main assembly on a subject that is not before the MOP as a decision-making body.

Chilling Prospects: Tracking Sustainable Cooling for All, 2019 is a follow-up to Chilling Prospects: Providing Sustainable Cooling for All, the first report to define and quantify the magnitude of the global cooling access challenge, including an assessment of 52 countries facing the biggest risks, measured by extreme heat, food losses, and damaged or destroyed vaccines and medicines. The 2019 report serves as a status update. It profiles fast action in access to cooling, provides an update on global access to cooling gaps, and provides policy makers, the private sector and development financiers with tools and guidance on how to accelerate progress.
