In early November 2018, the Centre delivered a two-day workshop for African Delegates to the Montreal Protocol, in preparation for the 30th Meeting of the Parties in Quito, Ecuador (read highlights from the meeting here). Our training was sponsored by GIZ (Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit), acting as a technical partner for the Green Cooling Initiative.
The 20+ participants included government officials from a number of African countries. The training addressed issues pertinent to complex multilateral negotiations, such as coalition-building and the implementation of the Kigali Amendment. The Kigali Amendment will come into force in 2019 and will extend regulations under the Montreal Protocol to cover the most potent greenhouse gasses.
