The OzonAction Branch supports the phasing out of ozone-depleting substances in developing countries and those with economies in transition to ensure the implementation of the Montreal Protocol. With the programme’s assistance, countries are able to make informed decisions about alternative technologies and ozone-friendly policies.

Capacity-building services that empower the National Ozone Units include an information clearinghouse, training and regional networking.

Primarily funded by the Multilateral Fund of the Montreal Protocol, the programme also receives support from the Global Environment Facility, the Government of Sweden, and the Government of Finland.
