Report to 31st Meeting of Montreal Protocol’s Open Ended Working Group

A report to the 31st meeting of the Open-Ended Working Group of parties to the Montreal Protocol, held in Montreal, Canada, from 1-5 August 2011.

We urge Parties to resolve and reach agreement on funding and other issues to ensure we implement the final phase-out of ozone-depleting substances without further phasing in harmful HFCs.

We maintain the Montreal Protocol has the ability, the power and the obligation to act as rapidly and forcefully as it can.
