Strengthening capacities for energy efficiency in buildings in Latin America (CEELA)

Planned project

Emissions caused by the buildings and construction sector are one of the major causes of climate change. Switzerland will contribute to limiting global temperature rise by strengthening capacities for energy-efficient and thermally comfortable building design and construction in Latin America, transferring and adapting expertise gained from the Swiss success story of drastically lowering the energy use of new buildings in the last decades.
