- Review the Montreal Protocol
- Grasp Asia Pacific’s global significance
- Awareness of policies in the Asia Pacific
- Understand how policies address ozone mitigation and climate change in the building sector
- You should be familiar with building design and common terms used in the building sector
The Asia Pacific region is witnessing some of the highest national GDP - growth rates in the world. It is also home to more than half the world’s population- a population that’s young, skilled and ambitious. So, the region has all the makings to emerge as the new seat of global economic power by 2050.
The building sector in Asia Pacific is also undergoing an unprecedented growth- in fact, more than half of the world’s new building construction is taking place here. It is crucial that Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) and its high-GWP alternatives do not get locked into the new construction coming up here. Policies and programs can have a far-reaching influence on enabling the building sector to shift to ozone and climate friendly alternatives.
ODS are used in refrigeration, airconditioning, foams and fire fighting systems in buildings. The course offers a detailed insight into the different policies and programs that address the use of Ozone Depleting Substances, particularly HCFCs, and alternatives in the Asia Pacific building sector.
There are 4 modules in this course. The first one offers a quick review of ODS and the Montreal Protocol. The second module gives you an overview of the Asia Pacific region including the challenges and opportunities it faces in its economic and social development. A detailed study of the region’s building sector and its emissions follows in the third module, establishing the need for strong regulating policy frameworks in the region. The last module covers a cross section of policies and programs and how they address both ODS and energy efficiency. The course summarizes the fact that integrating both is key.
At the end of this course, you will have clarity on Asia Pacfic’s role in ozone protection and climate change mitigation and the importance of policies to achieve this. You will also be convinced that integrating ozone depletion with improved building energy efficiency is key achieve ODS phaseout in a sustainable manner.
