In partnership with the Ozone Cell (Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change, Government of India), United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Government of Germany, the project aims to facilitate India’s compliance with the Montreal Protocol control targets for consumption of Annex-C, Group-I substances (HCFCs) for 2013 and 2015, with minimal impacts on the national economy, environment and health. To achieve this, the aim is to implement a combination of interventions such as technology transfer investments, policy and regulatory actions, technical assistance, training and capacity-building, awareness generation and monitoring in selected HCFC consuming sectors.
