United Nations Environment Programme OzonAction

The OzonAction Branch with its Compliance Assistance Programme (CAP) in 9 sub-regions, provides assistance to 147 countries (Article 5 parties under the Montreal Protocol) that cover a broad spectrum in terms of population, geographic size, location, and level of ozone-depleting substances consumption and production. The regional delivery mechanism of the CAP team and its interaction on a day-to-day basis with the National Ozone Units is a distinct feature of the OzonAction.

OzonAction’s main objective is to assist those countries in achieving and sustaining compliance with the targets set by the Protocol and to enable countries make informed decisions about alternative technologies and ozone-friendly policies.
