Regional destruction project for eca lvc countries Presentation Transcript

  • 1. UNEP OzonAction - UNIDOUnited Nations Environment Programme Addressing ODS banks through preparation of ECA regional destruction project for LVC-countries ANNUAL MEETING OF THE REGIONAL OZONE NETWORK FOR EUROPE & CENTRAL ASIA Belgrade, Serbia, 12-13 May 2011 Rodica Ivan - UNIDO / Etienne Gonin - UNEP Regional Ozone Network for Europe & Central Asia Compliance Assistance Programme
  • 2. Context • A window in ExCom for funding Disposal andUnited Nations Environment Programme Destruction of ODS, although not directly required for compliance with MP (XXI/2 – ExCom 63/5) • This window is reserved to Low-Volume Consuming countries (LVCs) for US$ 3 million • Rationale: to look at common solutions to address the question of disposal/destruction of stockpiles of unwanted ODSs • Regional approaches may be a way for LVCs, in which disposal/destruction facilities may not exist, to address existing banks Regional Ozone Network for Europe & Central Asia Compliance Assistance Programme
  • 3. Context (continued)United Nations Environment Programme • Two ODS destruction projects approved at ExCom 63 in April 2011, including one for an LVC: Ghana (UNDP) • Destruction was also discussed at length during ExCom regarding the Mexico project • Approval in UNEP’s and UNIDO’s business plans of joint projects for all regions • Included in endorsed business plan for ECA: – USD 100,000 project preparation for 2011 – USD 700,000 for destruction project for 2012 (132+568) Regional Ozone Network for Europe & Central Asia Compliance Assistance Programme
  • 4. ECA-specific informationUnited Nations Environment Programme • LVCs eligible for MLF funding: – Albania, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia , Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Montenegro, Republic of Moldova, Turkmenistan • Larger consuming (non-LVC) countries in the region may have projects / experiences to share: – Macedonia, Turkey, Serbia • Non-Art. 5 countries (including CEITs) may also be interested in the project Regional Ozone Network for Europe & Central Asia Compliance Assistance Programme
  • 5. United Nations Environment Programme First step: project preparation • Assessing the situation: review available stockpiles • Develop strategy for collecting ; possible transportation; destruction of stockpiles • Scope of the substances to be addressed: limited to ODSs or extended to other chemicals? (e.g. POPs) • Analysis of potential partners: – Private sector – Countries interested in participating Regional Ozone Network for Europe & Central Asia Compliance Assistance Programme
  • 6. First step: project preparation (continued)United Nations Environment Programme – Assessment of existing: • background information (e.g. OS Workshop – 2009) • expertise available in the region • destruction facilities (Czech Rep., Poland, other?) • Acceptable destruction processes/facilities as per MP, and in particular Decision XXII/10 (review the list) – Search for possible co-financing • From GEF or from Bilaterals • From SAICM Quick Start Programme • From Voluntary Carbon Finance • Other? – Link it with inventory of POPs? (GEF) Regional Ozone Network for Europe & Central Asia Compliance Assistance Programme
  • 7. Potential Quantities as per informal ECA surveyUnited Nations Environment Programme • Albania: proposed destruction activities in HPMP presented at ExCom 64 but considered non eligible under HPMP. Stockpiles could grow and management needed • Armenia: No data on ODS for destruction but some requests from importers on what to do with end-of-life CFCs. Quantities to be identified • Bosnia and Herzegovina: No substances collected for destruction. There might be some small stockpiles. In future, might be residues from R&R operation • Croatia: Halon bank + stockpiles in service company, RRR center and in equipment > need support Regional Ozone Network for Europe & Central Asia Compliance Assistance Programme
  • 8. Potential Quantities as per informal ECA survey (c’ed)United Nations Environment Programme • Georgia: Stockpile of ca. 2 tonnes of ODS waste in the country. Destruction project draft submitted to UNDP. Regional approach might be considered • Kyrgyzstan: Small stockpiles of about 6 tonnes scattered all over country. Collecting all unwanted ODS in the countries is the primary issue, before destruction • Montenegro: No information for the moment. • Republic of Moldova: necessary to make inventory • Turkmenistan: Small stockpiles in Turkmenistan – no evaluation at the moment Regional Ozone Network for Europe & Central Asia Compliance Assistance Programme
  • 9. United Nations Environment Programme Summary of informal survey – Interest in most of the eligible countries – Main interest: to improve inventory of existing quantities (stockpiles) + collection process – Potential for evolution (increasing stocks of unwanted substances) – Few links at the moment with other chemicals – One potential project (Georgia – UNDP) – Quantities identified for the moment not very high but some may just be unknown – Interest in small destruction units expressed by 2 countries (demonstrated in Port Ghalib’s MOP).

  • 10. United Nations Environment Programme Next steps – Confirmation of interest by countries – Development of a Project preparation proposal by UNEP and UNIDO for submission at ExCom 65 – Contacting potential partners/stakeholders: • GEF secretariat • Private sector • Stockholm Convention Secretariat / UNEP chemicals • Basel Convention Secretariat • Resource centres (Brno in Czech Republic, Poland,…) – Compare to other approved or proposals in preparation to learn from best practices Regional Ozone Network for Europe & Central Asia Compliance Assistance Programme
  • 11. United Nations Environment Programme Discussion / Feedback – Interest in regional approach? – Priorities OK – to be modified? – Comments on the process? the timing? – Lessons from existing experiences to be shared with this meeting? – Suggestions on other partners / synergy? – Confirmation from ECA countries – Any other question / suggestion? – To be discussed in the breakout session Thanks!
