OzonAction: UN Environment Taking Action on the Montreal Protocol - OzoAction Fact Sheet

United Nations Environment Programme (2018)

UN Environment became an Implementing Agency of the Fund on 19 June 1991, and was given this clearinghouse mandate. Since then, the OzonAction Branch of the Law Division has been strengthening the capacity of governments – particularly the operational focal points for the Montreal Protocol, known as National Ozone Units – as well as industry, customs and enforcement agencies in developing countries to elaborate and enforce the policies required to implement the Protocol and to make informed decisions about alternative technologies and trade monitoring and control. OzonAction’s overall goal is to enable those countries to meet and sustain their compliance obligations under the treaty.
