Abstract for: Ozone Depleted and Depletion of Cooperation: Model-based Management Assessment to Make Collective Action Sustainable Overtime

This paper assesses the capability of cooperation -based on trust- to support collective action to be, aiming at mitigating the Ozone Depletion Crisis. We developed a System Dynamics model to assess the Ozone Crisis. We conclude that initial conditions determine path dependence conditions for trust and cooperation effects, which require additional complementary mechanisms to achieve sustainable cooperation for overcoming the Ozone Crisis. We propose better understanding the inertia of chlorofluorocarbons CFC) accumulation and their effect on cooperation to efficiently overcome the crisis.
