UNEP OzonAction and the Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate of the Republic of Zimbabwe organised the joint meeting of Ozone Officers’ Network for Africa and West Asia on 17-23 March 2016 in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. The meeting took place at a critical time in the life of the Montreal Protocol when countries are striving to meet their commitments of phasing out hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) while addressing technological challenges related to different consuming sectors and trying to maximise the climate benefits by leapfrogging to energy efficient, low-GWP alternatives and technologies where feasible.

AREA Vice-President Marco Buoni took part and gave a presentation on "Effective and sustainable training for RAC technicians".
