Montreal Protocol 30th AnniversaryThe preparatory segment of the twenty-ninth Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol (MOP 29) and the eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Vienna Convention (COP 11) convened for its second day on Tuesday, 21 November 2017, in Montreal, Canada. In the morning, delegates discussed, inter alia, energy efficiency; safety standards; HFCs not listed in Annex F to the Protocol; nominations and appointments for membership in various Protocol bodies; and compliance and reporting issues.

In the afternoon, delegates addressed issues under the Vienna Convention, including the outcomes of the tenth meeting of the Ozone Research Managers (ORM) of the parties to the Vienna Convention, and the status of the Vienna Convention Trust Fund (VCTF). They also considered other matters, including an issue raised by Saudi Arabia on low-global-warming-potential (GWP) technologies for the air conditioning sector, and a concern related to hurricanes impacting Protocol implementation, raised by Grenada.

Contact groups on data reporting, replenishment, safety standards, and energy efficiency met at various points throughout the day. The Budget Committee also met during the lunch break.​

IISD Reporting Services, through its Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB) Meeting Coverage, has provided daily web coverage, daily reports, and a summary and analysis report from COP 11/MOP 29. The summary and analysis report is available in HTML and PDF.
