Atmospheric Protection

D. Anton, J. Kohout and N. Pain, in “Nationalizing Environmental Protection in Australia: The International Dimensions” (1993), wrote:

“Ozone depletion, greenhouse gases, and atmospheric pollution are increasing global problems. Effective control requires a concerted effort by all nations. The Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer[62] and the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer[26 I.L.M. 1541 (1987)] are the landmark international agreements on protection of the ozone layer.

The history of the Montreal Protocol demonstrates the importance of building scientific consensus and the need to develop a commonly accepted body of data and analysis. The Protocol uses three kinds of provisions as economic incentives to encourage participation and compliance with the control regime. They are entry into force requirements, controls on trade with nonparties, and research and technology transfer benefits.[Carol Annette Petsonk, The Role of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in the Development of International Environmental Law, 5 AM. U. J INT’L L. & POL’Y 351, 370 (1990)]”
