May 12, Colombo: Meeting of the South Asia Network of Ozone Officers will be held from May 27 -30 at the Grand Oriental Hotel in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

The meeting is organized by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) - Compliance Assistance Programme (CAP) in collaboration with the National Ozone Unit.

This Network Meeting is an annual event planned by the Ozone Secretariat of the Montreal Protocol.

Sri Lanka acceded to the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer and ratified the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer in 1989 and its subsequent amendments between 1990 and 1999.

Sri Lanka continues to be an active country in the phasing out of ozone depleting substances and is well ahead of developing countries in fulfilling the Protocol requirements.

The Ozone Officers Network for South Asia is managed by UNEP as part of its global networking under the OzonAction Branch. Member countries of the Network include: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Iran, North Korea, South Korea, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, and two developed countries: Japan and United States.
