Phasing out ozone depleting substances (ODS) is one of the goals of the Global Environment Facility (GEF). The GEF finances projects that phase out ozone depleting substances where these activities would be complementary to those funded under the Multilateral Fund of the Vienna Convention on the Protection of the Ozone Layer. So as not to duplicate those activities funded under the Multilateral Fund, GEF financing is targeted primarily to activities in Eastern Europe.
UNEP's activities to protect the ozone layer have primarily been carried out in partnership with UNDP.They include the development of country programmes to phase out ozone depleting substances and activities to build country capacity to comply with the provisions of the Montreal Protocol including awareness raising, training, policy development and demonstration of the use of more benign alternatives to ozone depleting substances.
