The 9th COP and 23rd MOP

Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC), the Brand New and the Largest Convention Center in Bali has an honored to be selected to accommodate a prestigious events, the 9th Joint Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Vienna Convention for the Protection of Ozone Layer and the 23rd Meeting of the Parties (MOP) to the Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer on 21-25 November 2011. Session of the COP / MOP was attended by about 800 people representing 196 countries, international organizations and other concerned parties.
The main topics discussed at a meeting of COP-9 and MOP-23 to include the Replenishment of the Multilateral Fund; Quarantine and Pre-shipment uses of methyl bromide; sustained mitigation of ODS emissions from feedstock and process agent uses; Environmental sound disposal of ozone-depleting substances; Treatment of ozone-depleting substances used to service ships; Proposed Amendments to the Montreal Protocol; and Phase-out of HFC-23 by-product emissions.
Indonesia sees still need to use some type of HFC used in vehicle air conditioning, domestic and industrial refrigeration equipment with a fixed foam into account the technical side, the economy and safety. However, Indonesia supports the efforts for the selection of alternative low-BPO global warming potential (Global Warming Potential) so in addition to protecting the ozone layer also controls the climate system changes.
New commitment to the Montreal Protocol adopted in 2007 is to accelerate the elimination of hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), which HCFCs have ozone depletion potential and global warming potential. The most commonly used HCFCs has nearly 2,000 times more potent than carbon dioxide (CO2) in increasing global warming. Through the acceleration of the elimination of HCFCs, the State Parties to the Montreal Protocol would contribute significantly to protecting the global climate system.
Indonesia has developed a HCFC Phase Out Management Plan (HPMP) to achieve the target of the freeze in 2013 and 10% reduction of HCFCs in 2015, which is expected to support Indonesia targets to voluntarily reduce CO2 emissions by 26% from business as usual will be achieved in 2020. Indonesia HPMP prepared for close cooperation between government, industry and international partners, and has been approved at Executive Committee meeting of 64th July 2011. As a follow-up approval HPMP Indonesia, as well as technology transfer policy and regulatory interventions HCFCs into the task to be performed in the near future. Selection of appropriate technology to replace HCFCs are not only eliminate ODS but also consider the impact of global warming and increasing energy efficiency.
The role and support of all stakeholders in Indonesia became the capital base so that a whole series of meetings held with the good and the ultimate goal to protect human health and the environment can be achieved.
