IISD is pleased to announce that the Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB), IISD's e-publication on international negotiations, has won an award for outstanding work in raising awareness of ozone depletion and the Montreal Protocol.

The ENB is well-known as a balanced, timely and independent reporting service that provides daily information from multilateral negotiations on environment and sustainable development throughout the world. By promoting transparency and openness of the intergovernmental processes, ENB encourages the increased exchange of information and knowledge globally amongst the public, media and the international delegates.

The award was presented to ENB's William McPherson at the twentieth anniversary of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer on Sunday, September 16, 2007. The event was hosted by Environment Canada and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), and took place at the Palais de Congrès in Montreal, Canada.
