Workshop with ECOWAS Member States and ECOWAS Secretariat on Harmonization of ODS Regulations for the ECOWAS region and on the possibility of Adopting an Extended HS Code to accommodate the Refrigerants affected by the Kigali Amendment
This meeting is organised by CAP Regional Office in Africa of UN Environment OzonAction in cooperation with the Government of Bénin.
It is part of the Regional Network service that OzonAction's Compliance Assistance Programme (CAP) provides to Article 5 (developing) countries as part its role as an Implementing Agency of the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol.
The Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer will help protect the climate by phasing down high global warming potential hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), which are commonly used as refrigerants. Promoting energy efficiency of air conditioning and refrigeration technology can significantly increase those climate co-benefits.
