The potential importance of the coupling between climate change and atmospheric ozone has been recognised for some time. But although recent reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and WMO-UNEP have included some aspects of this topic, no thorough scientific overview of this problem is presently available.

The aim of this European report is to present in a coherent way the present understanding of the interactions between ozone and climate, regardless of the atmospheric region where the processes are taking place and including their consequences for environmental problems such as climate change, ozone depletion and tropospheric pollution. In emphasising these interactions, the report provides a framework for future strategies in the field of atmospheric research, and for further discussion, involving scientists, research agencies and policy-makers on the necessary measures to be taken at the interface of the Kyoto Protocol and the Montreal Protocol.
