The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change is organizing a training program for technicians and workers in companies related to the refrigeration and air conditioning sector during this current November. This falls within the second phase of the project for the gradual elimination of substances harmful to the ozone layer. The program is conducted in collaboration with the College of Engineering at Qatar University, under the supervision of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
The training, organized by the Hazardous Chemicals and Waste Department, will be conducted in two stages. The first stage is scheduled for November 22nd to 23rd, 2023, while the second stage will take place on December 13th to 14th, 2023. This aims to train workers in related sectors on proper practices according to international standards for the disposal of substances harmful to the ozone layer.
This falls within a series of workshops and training courses initiated by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change some time ago. It reflects Qatar’s commitment to international agreements, particularly the Vienna Convention and the Montreal Protocol, aimed at preserving the ozone layer by transitioning towards environmentally friendly alternatives. This also underscores the need to take further steps in reducing greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate the effects of climate change. These efforts contribute to enhancing international endeavors to protect the ozone layer and mitigate the impacts of global warming.
