About the webinar

In this webinar some of the biggest environmental problems caused by refrigerant gases with global warming potential will be known; as well as experiences and challenges. As part of the effort to address these problems, the Kigali Amendment has been signed, which establishes the gradual elimination of hydrofluorocarbon (HCF) refrigerant gases, which have a very high contribution to global warming, an agreement that Costa Rica has ratified and published as Law No. 9522 on March 19th, 2018.

In Costa Rica, several projects of the German Development Cooperation, GIZ, support the development of actions for climate protection, becoming a low-emission development model (decarbonization) and practical cases useful for the countries of the region.

Information on Costa Rica’s experience will be shared on the webinar to address the problem of refrigerant gases in the face of climate change and promote good management practices, including preventive maintenance and proper equipment disposal; as well as promoting energy efficiency in the air conditioning and refrigeration (RAC) sector, and the experience of the Monteverde community will be presented. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org.
