The ozone layer is one of the most important natural resources and it plays a major role in environmental protection. This chapter discusses ozone layer depletion and also addresses the importance of cooperation among countries on this issue. Natural resource scarcity and environmental degradation play a key role in promoting successful international cooperation. The characteristics, reasons, causes, and all other asymmetries of ozone resource depletion are mentioned in detail in the later sections of the chapter. The Montreal Protocol, which played an important role in the negotiations of international cooperation among states and countries globally, is described. The concluding part demonstrates some broader lessons that fit in with the overall themes of the book.

Keywords:   ozone layer depletion, environmental protection, natural resource scarcity, environmental degradation, international cooperation, Montreal Protocol
