This chapter develops the main case study of the book — the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. It explains how the treaty was negotiated, and describes its main features. The theory developed in the previous chapter explains that treaty outcomes are shaped in part by payoffs; this chapter provides estimates of the payoffs (net benefits) to participation in this treaty. The appendix includes the text of the original treaty.
