The Regional Technical Expert Meetings on Mitigation 2020 for the Africa Region will be held on the theme: Climate smart cooling solutions for sustainable buildings in Africa.
The meeting will discuss:
- new sustainable solutions for cooling that take into consideration climate impacts and new societal needs;
- policies that should be developed and put in place so as to optimize the use of energy and resources; and
- challenges that prevent the private sector from investing in clean and sustainable building and contributing to transformational changes.
Special focus will be given on natural and passive cooling solutions, including the design of buildings using local knowledge, construction techniques and materials.
The outcomes of the events will be reported to the global Technical Expert Meeting to be held in September 2010, and will also be reflected in the technical paper and summary for policy makers for 2020.
The meeting is organized by the Secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
