(p.1) 1 Introduction: When Agriculture Meets the Ozone Layer
From Precaution to Profit

Brian J. Gareau

Yale University Press

This introductory chapter first sets out the book's purpose, which is to explore how science, governments, industry, and civil society co-create solutions to global environmental challenges. It then describes the Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer, which is considered as the single most important global environmental agreement in human history. It discusses how the Montreal Protocol almost completely stalled in its efforts to phase out methyl bromide and the neoliberal turn in Protocol decision making. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   Montreal Protocol, environmental agreement, environmental governance, methyl bromide, neoliberalism, environmental regulation, environmental policy
