New UN Dispatch Podcast: The Inside Story of How the World Closed the Hole in the Ozone Layer

UN Dispatch’s new podcast episode tells the success story of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, which is considered the most successful global environmental treaty. The episode features scientists who discovered the link between Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and ozone depletion; key diplomats and government leaders who pressed for the international regulation of CFCs in 1987; and academics and civil society leaders who explain why this 31-year-old agreement is as relevant today as it was the day it was signed.
