The current focus is to support the countries with the development and implementation of their HCFC Phase-Out Management Plans (HPMP). Proklima’s activities include policy advice, trainings on the safe handling of natural refrigerants, recommendations for the recovery and recycling of HCFC and technology transfer. Due to the Kigali Amendment, more and more projects are also concentrating on the HFC phase-down (Kigal Implementation Plans, KIPs). The ozone protection activities are conducted on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in conjunction with the German Ozone Fund.

Proklima realised more than 280 bilateral ozone protection projects within the Multilateral fund.

The Multilateral Fund was set up for the implementation of the Montreal Protocol and is dedicated to reversing the deterioration of the Earth's ozone layer. The main objective is to assist developing country parties whose annual level of consumption of ODS, CFCs and halons is less than 0.3 kilograms per capita (Article 5 countries) to comply with the control measures of the Protocol.
