Success story

Sometimes we need to celebrate UN successes…on September 16 we celebrated the Silver Jubilee of the most successful treaty in UN history: the Montreal Protocol on ozone depletion—it achieved universal ratification and met its goals ahead of schedule. Globally the Protocol is estimated to have prevented over 20 million more cases of skin cancer and 130 million cases of cataracts.
