The project will strengthen the regulatory and institutional framework, develop monitoring and enforcement mechanisms, and provide training to appliance professionals. The project will explore and test efficient market-based economic incentives complemented by repeated public outreach campaigns. Domestic refrigeration appliances will be the first end-use devices to be tackled, with a specific focus to address ozone depleting substances contained in the current stock of equipment.
