The goal of the GEF 6 Chemicals and Waste Results Framework for Ozone Depleting Substances is to promote the sound management of chemicals throughout their lifecycle in order to minimize adverse effects on the global environment and health of women, children and men through the phase-out and reduction of ODSs with a global indicator of 303.44 ozne depleting potential (ODP) tons of HCFC phased out. The principle global environmental benefit from the project will be to reduce consumption of HCFCs by 99.5% to 0.37 ODP tonnes of their baseline of 74.70 ODP tonnes and sustaining reductions in the servicing tail from that date till 2030 which requires solid national capacity in place to do so. consist of the four (4) interrelated and mutually reinforcing components. These have been specifically designed to address remaining barriers and improve sustainability prospects on the path towards HCFC-free future in Uzbekistan:
Component 1: National legislation and capacity building of customs and enforcement officers on control of HCFC and ODS alternatives import/export.
Component 2: Strengthening the HCFC re-use system and implementation of demonstration projects on HCFC replacement.
Component 3: Outreach and Resource Mobilization.
Component 4: Gender Mainstreaming and Monitoring & Evaluation.
