The Workshop on Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) Management opened on Friday, 11 July 2014, with a keynote presentation by Ibrahim Thiaw, Deputy Executive Director, UNEP, about the opportunity to maximize both climate and ozone benefits, followed by brief presentations by A.R. Ravishankara and Paul Newman, Co-Chairs of the Scientific Assessment Panel, on the effect of current and projected HCFC and HFC emissions on ozone depletion and climate change, Lambert Kuijpers, Co-Chair of the Technology and Economic Assessment Panel (TEAP) on the current production data on HFCs and estimates of current consumption, and Janet Bornman, Co-Chair, Environmental Effects Assessment Panel (EEAP) on the effect of HFCs and HCFCs on the biosphere.

The rest of the workshop was divided into four topical sessions, each opened by short presentations by invited speakers on aspects of the session's focus, followed by reactions and discussion by a resource panel and audience members, including inputs from an online board for posting questions. Session 1: Technical Aspects, and Session 2: Legal Aspects, were held on Friday. Session 3: Finance and Technology Transfer, and Session 4: Policies and Measures for HFC Management, were held on Saturday, 12 July.
