The CCAC's Scientific Advisory Panel will host its second virtual Science Policy Dialogue on Monday, 28 September 2020, under the theme "Catalyzing 2030 Mitigation Ambition – HFCs."
This event will bring together scientists, policymakers, practitioners, and regulators to review methane emissions reduction potentials and the ways HFC mitigation can be leveraged to drive ambitious action this decade.
Discussions will focus on the opportunities and barriers for mitigating global emissions of HFCs consistent with a 1.5C pathway by 2030.
This is the second dialogue organized by the CCAC's Scientific Advisory Panel in 2020. The first dialogue, on 22 June, focused on mitigation opportunities for methane.

14:30 | Welcome and Instructions
14:35 | Session 1 – Equipment in Use and Avoiding the Need for Cooling: Opportunities and Challenges
This session will overview expected achievement in mitigation through the Kigali Amendment, in comparison with the mitigation expected in 1.5°C consistent scenarios under the Paris Agreement. It will also assess additional potential mitigation and benefits which could be achieved beyond the current level of KA ambition and discuss the opportunities for the CCAC to support greater ambition.
15:35 | Session 2 – Life Cycle Management (refrigerant end of life)
This session will highlight on the current state of management of refrigerants at the end of life, opportunities for mitigation within the 2030 timeframe, and how the CCAC can support greater ambition within the 2030 timeframe. This session is co-organized with the Ministry of the Environment, Japan, which launched the Initiative on Fluorocarbons Life Cycle Management (IFL) at COP25 in 2019.
16:35 | Session 3 – Cross Cutting Opportunities and Challenges
This session will focus on opportunities for enhancing near-term HFC mitigation through cross-cutting action, such as by focusing on cold food chains and by focusing on parallel energy efficiency improvements.
