"Cold value chain" is defined as the specific supply chain scheme which requires that all elements of the food process be carried out under prescribed low temperatures to ensure the safety and the quality of the product. Cold chain, in fact, consumes a remarkable quantity of energy. It is reported to account for 30% of total world energy consumption. Therefore, UNDIO has established local partnerships with the objective to encourage private financing to invest in the energy efficiency of cold value chains and distribution channels in Afghanistan. This project estimates that it can avoid more than 125,000 metric tonnes of direct and indirect CO2 equivalent GHGs.
