The parties to the Montreal Protocol meet once a year to take decisions designed to ensure the successful implementation of the Agreement.

The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer is a global agreement to protect the Earth’s ozone layer by phasing out the chemicals that deplete it. This phase-out plan includes both the production and consumption of ozone-depleting substances. It is the only universal environmental agreement signed by all members of the United Nations. 

In 2016, during the 28th MOP in Kigali (Rwanda), more than 170 countries agreed to amend the Protocol. The so-called Kigali Amendment includes Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) in the phase-down plans. They do not deplete the ozone layer, but are powerful greenhouse gases. The goal is to reduce HFC consumption by over 80% by 2047. This is to prevent global warming by up to 0.5 ° C by the end of the century.

The 32nd Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (MOP 32) is scheduled to take place from 23-27 November 2020 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
