‘Cooling’ has been linked with economic growth. It is defined as a catalyst for good health, well-being, and better productivity for the occupants residing in hot climate zones, along with being one of the essential cornerstones for achieving the objectives of sustainable development goals (SDG), as per India Cooling Action Plan (ICAP) 2019. The Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy (AEEE) is hosting a one-day-event “Climate Actions through ICAP Implementation: Setting priorities for the Decade of Action” under the project SHEETAL-Alliance for Sustainable Habitat, Energy Efficiency and Thermal Comfort for All, supported by Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF). This event is being hosted on 25th November 2021.
The event “Climate Actions through ICAP Implementation: Setting priorities for the Decade of Action” envisions setting priorities for a decade of action from 2021-2030. This event aims to unravel the key challenges and opportunities across the sectors, which would be instrumental in moving ahead towards a sustainable future for all, through ICAP implementation. The event will also showcase work done by AEEE, under the SHEETAL project, in the thematic areas of Cold-Chain, Buildings, Behaviour Change & Appliances, while providing a platform to deliberate discussions to arrive at priorities for the decade via plenary sessions with businesses, government and the civil society organisations.
