By decision XXXII/2, the Thirty-Second Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol agreed to authorize the Secretariat to organize an extraordinary meeting of the Parties in 2021 to enable parties to take a decision on the replenishment of the Multilateral Fund for the triennium 2021-2023 if and when the circumstances related to the global COVID-19 pandemic permit it. In relation to this decision, the Secretariat has received a request by some parties to schedule the extraordinary meeting of the parties as soon as possible and before mid-June 2021 to facilitate the payment of national contributions to the Multilateral Fund in 2021 by some parties. Following some consultations on this request and the agreement by parties on holding an extraordinary meeting, the Secretariat wishes to notify all parties to the Montreal Protocol that the Fourth Extraordinary Meeting of the Parties shall be held online on 21 May 2021 for one day. Further information about the Meeting and the invitation will be communicated in due course. Relevant pre-session documents, will be posted when ready.
