CLASP launches report on “Environmentally Harmful Dumping of Inefficient and Obsolete Air Conditioners in Africa.”
On 24 June, CLASP will publish a report on “Environmentally Harmful Dumping of Inefficient and Obsolete Air Conditioners in Africa.” This report provides a wide-ranging review of AC markets in Africa, the sources of environmental dumping of inefficient, high global warming potential (GWP) products, and the trade and policy factors that create a favorable environment for such practices. It also provides recommendations for policymakers looking to halt environmental dumping and set in motion a transition to highly-efficient, low-GWP ACs.
The report provides valuable findings for policymakers in Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia.
RCREEE was among the contributors to the analysis of this report and supported in interviewing stakeholders in Egypt’s room air conditioner market.
CLASP invites all interested parties to the report launch webinar scheduled on July 1, at 16:00 Cairo local time.
