The Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer and the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer are both administered by the ozone secretariat within the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, the secretariat is a bureaucracy that has served the parties to the Montreal Protocol for more than twenty years now. This chapter explores the influence of the work of the ozone secretariat on international ozone politics. After providing an overview of the ozone secretariat’s organizational structure and activities, the chapter analyzes its cognitive, normative, and executive influences. It also discusses the secretariat’s resources, competences, and embeddedness, along with its organizational expertise, organizational culture, and organizational leadership.

Keywords:   ozone politics, influence, Vienna Convention, Montreal Protocol, ozone secretariat, UNEP, bureaucracy, organizational expertise, organizational culture, organizational leadership
