Rwanda, Morocco Take Lead on Montreal Protocol
Rwanda and the Kingdom of Morocco have taken the lead in calling upon countries across the world to back the amendment of the Montreal Protocol on Ozone Depleting Substances.
The Montreal Protocol is a global agreement to protect the ozone layer by advocating for the phasing out of the production of substances responsible for ozone depletion and climate change.
In a joint statement, the two countries noted that passing the ambitious amendment to the Protocol should be seen as part of efforts to maximize appliance energy efficiency and protect the climate.
To facilitate deliberation on the matter, Kigali will this month host over 1,000 delegates with intention to pass the historic agreement.
