The Ecuadorian president, Lenin Moreno, will meet Thursday with representatives of the Montreal Protocol on Climate Change, with the aim of analyzing and looking for alternatives to protect the ozone layer and prevent global warming.
The meeting will take place within the framework of the XXX Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol, which takes place in a convention center in the town of Cumbayá, neighboring Quito, with the participation of more than 600 delegates from 197 subscribing countries, reported today the National Secretariat of Communication (Secom).
During this forum, observers from non-governmental organizations, implementing agencies of the Protocol, experts in environmental matters and companies, as well as the staff of the Ozone Secretariat, will examine the worldwide application of the agreement.
According to the statement, the Ecuadorian president will also spread the commitment of his Government to sustainable and sustainable industrial development, and will present the country as a tourist destination and international conference center.
"This is the first time that this meeting is held in South America and the decisions and agreements reached by the delegations, at the end of the meeting, will be globally known," said the Secom.
The Montreal Protocol is the first multilateral environmental agreement that has achieved universal ratification (197 countries), since its approval in 1987.
Its success lies in the commitment to work for the technological reconversion of the industrial sector that seeks alternative substances with zero ozone depletion potential and global warming, the source added.
