Learning the lessons of a decade

Produced on the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of the Montreal Protocol, this video describes the first decade of achievements of the global community in relation to ozone layer protection. It shows the chronology of initiatives taken following the warning given by scientists that CFCs were destroying the ozone layer that protects life on Earth against harmful ultraviolet radiation.


The Montreal Protocol represents a great achievement at the global scale. This work started in the early 1970s, is now recognised as an outstanding example of successful cooperation between developed and developing countries and provides an excellent model for treating complex environmental issues of global importance. The success of the Montreal Protocol resulted from the dedication and commitment of a number of individuals from varied cultural and social origins from around the world. Combining their efforts they made ozone layer protection a reality and the Montreal Protocol a success.


The "Montreal Protocol Who's Who" pays tribute to those individuals who played a critical role in realising this global effort to protect the ozone layer. The "Who's Who" is intended to identify and chronicle the achievements of significant Montreal Protocol champions and serve as a reference tool for all those interested in how environment issues can be addressed on a global scale. The accomplishments of the individuals contained in the "Montreal Protocol Who's Who" should be inspiring and encourage you to find your own way to help make the world a safer and better place for future generations.
