National Environment Service staff, Siana Whatarau, attended the 35th Meeting of the Parties for the Montreal Protocol on Ozone Depleting Substances in Nairobi, Kenya on the 23rd – 27th October 2023. The MOP35 is where decisions of the parties are adopted and these decisions drive key action under the protocol.

Executive Secretary of the Ozone Secretariat, Ms Megumi Nakamura, opened the meeting at 10am on the 23rd October. The delegations of the 197 parties to the protocol were joined by other attendees including high level representatives from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the technical committees of the protocol and observers.

In the preparatory segment, parties convened to discuss a range of highly anticipated topics from confirming the multilateral fund budget for the next triennium to support Party implementation to the impacts of COVID-19 on the consumption of controlled substances under the Montreal protocol.

In the high-level segment, twenty-seven (27) decisions were adopted by the Parties covering a range of actions including the replenishment of the multilateral fund for the 2024-2026 triennium by $965 million, to support implementation of the Montreal Protocol. Ms Siana Whatarau stated ‘the replenishment and support of the multilateral fund is instrumental to enabling the Cook Islands implementation of national activities to stay in compliance to the Montreal Protocol.’
