Cooling for All

Supported by

Cooling is essential for everyday life – from the cold chain systems that deliver our food and vaccines, to protection from extreme heatwaves. And yet 1.05 billion people worldwide are facing risks due to lack of cooling: limited access to nutritious food, essential health services like vaccines, and respite from rising temperatures.

Cooling for All aims to identify and overcome the challenges to, and seize the opportunities of, providing access to affordable, sustainable cooling solutions for all. Given the increased demand for cooling and the social and environmental costs of a business as usual approach, this will be crucial to achieve the Paris Agreement and deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We must scale up and speed up the delivery of sustainable access to cooling for all that will not increase emission and energy demand.

To do this, SEforALL engages leaders, benchmarks progress and supports access to cooling initiatives to protect the world’s most vulnerable populations from intensifying global heat.

Cooling for All Secretariat

SEforALL hosts the Cooling for All Secretariat, a platform for coordinating responses to address access to cooling. The Secretariat aims to identify the challenges of providing access to affordable, sustainable cooling solutions for all, and to seize opportunities to support access initiatives.  Read more
