Historique

The Government of Eswatini is a signatory to the Montreal Protocol and has requested UNDP to provide assistance in the implementation of the Hydrochloroflurocrabon Phase-out Management Programme (HPMP). Eswatini has implemented Stage I of the HPMP, which was aimed to phase out 6.19 ODP tonnes of HCFCs used in the foam manufacturing and refrigeration and air-conditioning (RAC) servicing sectors. HCFC consumption in Eswatini has decreased significantly through the implementation of stage I. 

Stage II of the HPMP proposes to achieve total phase-out of HCFC consumption by 1 January 2030 in accordance with the Montreal Protocol phase-out schedule and will build upon the experience gained during the implementation of stage I. Stage II will focus on promoting the transition to energy-efficient, ozone- and climate-friendly alternative technologies in the RAC sector consistent with the provisions of the Kigali Amendment. To achieve and sustain the HCFC phase-out, strengthening monitoring and enforcing control measures at ports of entry; capacity-building of customs and enforcement officers; strengthening the training and certification of refrigeration technicians; providing tools to servicing workshops; and raising public awareness to enhance uptake of the alternative technologies, will be undertaken. Key stakeholders include the National Ozone Unit, refrigeration technicians, importers and end-users. The Stage II of the HPMP was submitted for the consideration of, and after the review, was approved at the 86th meeting of the Executive Committee (ExCom) of the Multilateral Fund (MLF) for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol. The Government of Eswatini is a signatory to the Montreal Protocol and has requested UNDP to provide assistance in the implementation of the Hydrochloroflurocrabon Phase-out Management Programme (HPMP).
