The Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer, which serves as a framework for global efforts to protect the Earth's protective ozone layer, is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its adoption on 22 March 1985. The Vienna Convention and its Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer are the first and only global environmental treaties so far to achieve universal ratification, having been ratified by 197 parties. Together, they have established a successful ozone protection regime, with sound scientific knowledge serving as the basis for appropriate policies and action under the Convention and the Protocol.
