Palestine Becomes Full Member of Vienna Convention for Protection of Ozone Layer

Palestine was granted full membership in the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer and the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, under the Vienna Convention.

The Palestinian Environment Quality Authority announced, on Thursday, that the approval of the agreement comes after Palestine’s accession to the United Nations agency on March 18, 2019.

It will also develop a national plan to gradually get rid of the hydro-chlorofluorocarbons material through the hydro-chlorofluorocarbons Phase Out Management Plan (HPMP) and to look for alternative material.
