Taking into account the current exceptional circumstances related to the coronavirus disease (COVID‑19) pandemic, and without setting a precedent,
Recognizing the resources remaining from the 2018–2020 replenishment decided on in decision XXIX/1,
Appreciating the fact that that many parties have made contributions to the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer in 2021 pending a final decision on replenishment for the triennium 2021–2023,
Recalling decision XXXII/1, by which parties adopted an interim budget of $268 million for the Multilateral Fund for the triennium 2021–2023,
Noting that parties will take a decision on the replenishment of the Multilateral Fund to adopt a final budget for the triennium 2021–2023, including regular contributions,
To adopt an updated interim budget for the Multilateral Fund for the triennium 2021–2023 of $400 million until such time as the parties adopt a final decision on replenishment, including a revised budget for the triennium 2021–2023, on the understanding that the updated interim budget will be provided from contributions due to the Multilateral Fund and other sources for the triennium 2018–2020, and from contributions already made by parties in 2021.
