A global challenge to accelerate access to affordable, sustainable cooling through rapid deployment of cool roof materials

Run by the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP) in collaboration with the Global Cool Cities Alliance, Sustainable Energy for All and Nesta’s Challenge Prize Centre, the Challenge aims to demonstrate clean, effective and affordable cooling solutions, spurring the market for cost-effective passive cooling. This will improve sustainable access to cooling where there is the greatest need, and reduce the climate impact of cooling over time.
