Relationship between efforts to protect the stratospheric ozone layer and efforts to safeguard the global climate system: Issues related to Hydrofluorocarbons and Perfluorocarbons. Synthesis of information submitted by Parties and organizations. Note by the secretariat.
The Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA), at its fifteenth session, recalled decision 17/CP.5 entitled "Relationship between efforts to protect the stratospheric ozone layer and efforts to safeguard the global climate system" (FCCC/CP/1999/6/Add.1). The SBSTA further noted the information contained in document FCCC/SBSTA/1999/MISC.6 and Add.1 and 2 and also on the UNFCCC web site, and encouraged Parties included in Annex I to the Convention (Annex I Parties), the relevant bodies of the Montreal Protocol, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), intergovernmental organizations and non-governmental organizations to update further the information on available and potential ways and means of limiting emissions of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and perfluorocarbons (PFCs), including their use as replacements for ozone-depleting substances. The SBSTA also invited Parties to provide their views, by 1 March 2002, on information aspects noted in decision 17/CP.5 for compilation into a miscellaneous document (now available in FCCC/SBSTA/2002/MISC.6). The SBSTA requested the secretariat to prepare a document for consideration by the SBSTA at its sixteenth session, drawing upon information received by 1 March 2002 (FCCC/SBSTA/2001/8, para. 56)
