Capacity building for ozone monitoring and research in developing countries and in countries with economies in transition comes from the general commitments anchored in the Vienna Convention. The Parties under the Vienna Convention established the Trust Fund for Research and Systematic Observations for funding activities consistent with the objectives of the Vienna Convention and the recommendations of the Ozone Research Managers’ Meetings. Those aims are also consistent with the Strategy for the Implementation of the Global Atmosphere Watch Programme (GAW) of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) under which limited funds are available. Enhancement of the GAW ozone monitoring network in all continents and creation of local scientific communities contributing to the world ozone science are the Ozone Secretariat main goals of the capacity building.
