This report presents the key findings from the eleven countries (Bangladesh, Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ghana, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, Panama, Sri Lanka, and Trinidad and Tobago) that have developed and published their National Cooling Action Plans (NCAPs) with support from UNDP and the Clean Cooling Collaborative. The NCAPs are important instruments to promote sustainable and smart cooling practices in countries.
