Recognition of some of the Exemplary Projects that have been undertaken pursuant to Article 10 of the Montreal Protocol: Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer - “Celebrating 20 years of progress in 2007”
When the Montreal Protocol was originally negotiated in 1987, the negotiators understood clearly that their initial effort was a work in progress. Nowhere was this more clear than with regard to Article 10 of the Protocol. Among other things, that nascent provision called on the Parties to the Protocol to begin deliberations at their first meeting on the development of workplans to assist developing countries in complying with their obligations under the Protocol. The promise of this provision was not fully realized until 1990, when Article 10 of the Protocol was amended to provide for the establishment of a financial mechanism to provide financial and technical cooperation, including technology transfer, to developing countries to enable their compliance with the Montreal Protocol. A particularly notable feature of Article 10 was its call for the financial mechanism to include a multilateral fund.
