Fiji Hydrocholorofluorocarbon Phase-out Management Plan
The XIXth Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol in September 2007, through its Decision XIX/6, adopted an accelerated phase-out schedule for HCFCs. The first control is the freeze on production and consumption of HCFCs from 1 January 2013, at the Baseline Level (average of 2009 and 2010 consumption levels). The other control steps are reduction of 10% by 2015, reduction of 35% by 2020, reduction of 67% by 2025, reduction of 100% by 2030, allowance of 2.5% baseline (annual equivalent) for period 2030-2040 and complete phase out by 2040. Fiji is a party to the Montreal Protocol and needs to comply with the above targets.
During the 6th Meeting of the Executive Committee held in November 2011, HCFC Phase-out Management Plan of Fiji for achieving targets was approved by the Executive Committee of the Multilateral Fund. Total funding approved, in principle, was US$332,5000, of which US$199,500 was approved for UNDP and UD$133,000 for UNEP. For achieving HPMP targets, a multi-year Performance Based Agreement between the Government of Fiji and the Executive Committee (“HPMP Agreement of Fiji”) was approved by the Executive Committee for the Multilateral Fund to the Montreal Protocol in its 65th Meeting held in November 2011. This project document provides details of UNDP component of the HPMP. Implementation of the project will assist Government of Fiji in reducing their HCFC consumption from its baseline level of 8.44 ODP tons by 2013 to 5.49 ODP tons by 2020 in line the schedule specified in the HPMP Agreement of Fiji.
