About the product
In an effort to protect the Earth from the damaging effect by certain chemical compounds, governments have brokered many international agreements. These agreements have succeeded in curbing the consumption of ozone-depleting chemicals by involving almost all governments of the world in an unprecedented cooperative venture. This book details the stirring story of international cooperation under the leadership of the United Nations Environmental Programme. Discussions are presented under six main headings: The shield in the sky; The holes in the layer; Saving the ozone layer; The Montreal Protocol; The impact of the ozone regime; and The future of the ozone regime.
