This year’s workshop is the first since the Montreal Protocol (MP) ban on consumption and production of CFC, halon and CTC entered into force for Article 5 countries. After successfully making this final leap, our partner countries must focus on dealing with the aftermath of the phaseout – CFC and halon management and disposal, sustainability of institutions and policies established, and controlling pressures for illegal trade. Most critical are HCFCs and the impending MP control measures which together are quickly taking over as the chief concern of Article 5 countries.
The topics of the 14th Annual FA Workshop therefore focused heavily on these current challenges, drawing on past experiences in implementing national and sector ODS phaseout plans to determine where to apply lessons learned that would facilitate development and implementation of HCFC Phaseout Management Plans, and anticipating other new challenges.
