The twenty-eighth Meeting of the Parties (MOP 28) to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer convened for its second day in Kigali, Rwanda on Tuesday, 11 October 2016. In the morning, plenary discussed issues related to the Technology and Economic Assessment Panel (TEAP) assessment of the climate benefits and financial implications of the hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) phase-down schedules in the amendment proposals as well as other matters. Parties also heard a report on the previous evening’s discussions in the HFC Management Contact Group and the Legal Drafting Group.

Following plenary’s adjournment, the HFC Management Contact Group resumed its work. The Contact Group adjourned at lunch for informal consultations, which continued into the evening. The contact group on the Terms Of Reference (TOR) for the 2018–2020 Multilateral Fund (MLF) replenishment study, the budget committee and the informal consultation on safety standards also met during the course of the day.
