Chilling Prospects

Chilling Prospects series

Chilling Prospects is an analysis series developed by SEforALL to track global access to cooling gaps annually. The production is supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the Austrian Development Agency, and the Clean Cooling Collaborative (formerly K-CEP) as part of the Cooling for All initiative. 

Released for the first time in 2018, Chilling Prospects 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.
