Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol

A briefing to the 22nd Conference of the Parties (CoP22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), November 7-18, 2016, in Marrakech, Morocco.

The Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol is a legally binding multilateral measure which mandates concrete, sector-wide greenhouse gas emission reductions for both developed and developing countries.

It represents the largest near-term climate mitigation measure from a single agreement and has the potential to catalyse significant additional climate benefits beyond what is already enshrined.
