To mark the United Nations (UN) International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, Mr. Ahmed ElGharib, Assistant Researcher at the Qur’anic Botanic Garden (QBG), a member of Qatar Foundation (QF), highlights QBG’s contribution to ozone preservation efforts and environmental protection
In 1994, to commemorate the 1987 signing of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (Montreal Protocol), the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) designated September 16 as the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer. Since then, it has become a global vehicle for environmental preservation, reminding us of the indispensable role we can play as individuals in safeguarding our planet.
