Regional Network Meeting
1st-3rd March 2011
At present there are a number of non-ODP alternatives available for several HCFC uses. However the suitability of alternatives must be considered in light of their availability, maturity of the technologies, cost-effectiveness, energy efficiency, and other environmental considerations. The level of uncertainty regarding future technologies for Article 5 countries is therefore relatively high.
On the other hand the agreement to accelerate HCFC phase out requires countries to move quickly to achieve the initial freeze and reductions targets.
The Multilateral Fund has therefore recommended a staged implementation approach to developing HCFC Phase out Management Plans (HPMPs), whereby the first stage should address all policy and institutional strengthening as well as technical and financial assistance measures required to achieve compliance with the year 2013 freeze and 2015 10% reduction targets in all A5 countries.
-At present UNIDO is jointly implementing 7 HPMPs in LVCs
-UNIDO in charge of the servicing sector and in few cases of the manufacturing sector (mainly flexible sector)
-Additional 9 HPMPs are expected to be submitted in 2011 with UNEP being the lead Agency.
-At the last coordination meeting UNEP and UNIDO agreed to submit joint regional projects for ODS destruction.
