36th Meeting of the Open-Ended Working Group of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol


The 36th Meeting of the Open-ended Working Group of the Montreal Protocol Parties (OEWG-36) will discuss four proposed amendments to the Protocol on the phasedown of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), powerful greenhouse gases that have been used as alternatives to ozone-depleting substances. The Climate and Clean Air Coalition will have a booth featuring one of its initiative, “Promoting HFC Alternative Technology and Standards” or HFC Initiative. Delegates of OEWG-36 can also visit the booth to learn about the Coalition and other activities and projects that promote the reduction of emissions of other short-lived climate pollutants, in addition to HFCs, such as methane, black carbon and tropospheric ozone in various sectors such as agriculture, oil and gas industry, transport, waste, domestic cooking and heating, brick production, etc.
