Until nowadays, more than 190 countries have signed and ratified the Montreal protocol which is one of the most successful international agreements of global importance.The ozone over the Antarctic should recover 15 years later because of special climate conditions.
Serbia is the signatory of the Vienna Convention and Montreal Protocol and is significantly contributing to its successful realization.
