The World Bank is one of four implementing agencies with which countries can partner to access Multilateral Fund (MLF) funding. With nearly two decades of experience, the World Bank's Montreal Protocol program is well-established. Over 550 investment projects have been completed in more than twenty countries, and approximately 305,000 ODP tonnes (ozone depleting potential--the key measure for the Protocol) have been phased out.
The World Bank has developed a strong partnership with the MLF since its establishment in 1990. The Bank continues to assist the MLF to preserve human health and the environment by protecting the earth's stratospheric ozone layer.
