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.
This meeting is organised by the Europe & Central Asia Montreal Protocol Network (ECA network) of UN Environment Economy Division's OzonAction in cooperation with the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) and the Poly technic University of Valencia, Spain.
UN Environment Programme is an Implementing Agency of the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol. OzonAction is part of UN Environment Programme's Law Division and serves 147 developing countries through the Compliance Assistance Programme.
