Decision VC II/9: Expansion of the Global Ozone Observing System Network

The Conference of the Parties, in Decision VC II/9 of its Second Meeting, decided to request the Parties to the Vienna Convention as a matter of urgency to facilitate through bilateral and multilateral contributions the expansion of the ozone observing stations network, in particular at locations selected on the basis of generally accepted scientific criteria which are in the territories of interested developing countries, and specifically to request:

  1. WMO and UNEP to keep Parties continually aware of specific network needs which could be met by bilateral or multilateral co-operation;
  2. developed countries to make voluntary contributions to the WMO Special Fund for Environmental Monitoring for GO3OS;
  3. developing countries to make ozone layer monitoring a priority in their requests for bilateral and multilateral assistance within the context of the Global Ozone Observing System.
