Marco González, Executive Secretary, Ozone SecretariatOn Monday, 1 August 2011, the thirty-first session of the Open-ended Working Group of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (OEWG 31) was opened by OEWG Co-Chair Ndiaye Cheikh Sylla (Senegal). Marco González, Executive Secretary, Ozone Secretariat, called 2011 a “milestone” year for the Montreal Protocol, noting it marks the 20th anniversary of the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol (MLF) and a year of assessment of compliance with control measures under the Protocol. González applauded the successes of many parties in meeting 2010 compliance targets for the consumption and production of CFCs, halons, and carbon tetrachloride (CTC).

Participants heard a report from the Technology and Economic Assessment Panel’s (TEAP) task force on the 2012–2014 replenishment of the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol, and agreed to establish a contact group on the issue, to be chaired by Jozef Buys (Belgium) and Laura Berón (Argentina). In the afternoon, delegates broached discussion of two proposed amendments to the Montreal Protocol relating to HFCs, one submitted by Canada, Mexico and the US, and another submitted by the Federated States of Micronesia.
