NEW DELHI: The earth’s protective ozone layer is well on track to recovery, thanks to international efforts against ozone-depleting substances.

The latest Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion reveals a healing ozone layer, global warming reduction potential, and options for more ambitious climate action. The quadrennial review from the Scientific Assessment Panel of the Montreal Protocol will be presented at the 30th Meeting of the Parties to this historic accord.

This Gender Analysis and Gender Action Plan for UNDP Montreal Protocol projects in China, Nigeria and Peru was developed in October 2018 to support the ozone programme and projects in countries at the national and regional levels.

There is a 70-75 per cent chance of the El Niño weather pattern emerging during the northern hemisphere winter this year, a U.S. government weather forecaster said on Thursday.

India has become the first country in the world to develop this draft blueprint outlining action plan to bring down cooling requirement and refrigerant demands across sectors by 20 per cent to 25 per cent by 2037-38 while slashing cooling energy requirements by 25 per cent to 40 per cent within the same period. It was released by the Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan.

Overall efforts to reduce the use of chemicals harming the ozone layer across the European Union continued in 2017 and the EU has already achieved its goals on the phase-out of ozone-depleting substances under the Montreal Protocol, according to the latest data released by the European Environment Agency (EEA).

There's a 70% chance of a recurrence of the El Niño weather event before the end of this year, according to the World Meteorological Organisation.
