What you'll learn
  • 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. 

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone interested in learning about the environmental impact of buildings should take this course
  • If you are curious to learn about 'ozone hole' or 'ozone layer depletion' should take this course.
  • If you are someone interested in getting a world view of issues, knowing how different countries are responding to the issue of ozone depletion, this is the right course for you !

Preview 08:30

This module gives a detailed overview of the rapidly growing building sector in the Asia Pacific region. You will get an idea of the challenges and opportunities in the building sector than be addressed by policies. 

Module 3: Asia Pacific building sector

This module gives you a cross section of the policies in the building sector. There are many examples of specific countries that are doing great work in ensuring policies will the give the impact that is desired. This module is in the last because policies always have to be understood in context.
