In order to inform environmental and development policy-making processes, UNEP keeps under review the state of the world environment.
Vital Ozone Graphics 2.0 - Climate Link is a Resource Kit for journalists, which provides them with the essential visuals, facts, links and contacts to develop ozone story ideas. Graphics and figures can be downloaded and included in articles. This electronic publication is intended not only to inform and inspire journalists but also to serve as an interesting reference for those who wish to learn more about the Montreal Protocol and ozone layer depletion.
This second edition of "Vital Ozone Graphics" includes details on the latest decisions taken by the Parties to the Montreal Protocol to accelerate the phase out of HCFCs and outlines the implications this has on the use of replacement chemicals. The Resource Kit also focuses on the linkages and interconnections between ozone depletion and climate change – and the remaining challenges posed by the considerable amounts of ozone depleting substances remaining in equipment around the world.
Vital Ozone Graphics 2.0 - Climate Link is produced jointly by the OzonAction Branch of UNEP’s Division of Technology, Industry and Economics (DTIE), GRID-Arendal and Zoï Environment Network, with support provided by the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol.
