The Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol (MLF) is a Trust Fund created to provide both technical and financial assistance to developing countries to comply with the control measures of the Montreal Protocol, set to eliminate ozone-depleting substances. The Fund’s Secretariat is located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The Fund uses four agencies to implement projects funded by the Montreal Protocol Trust Fund. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is one of these four agencies. The Montreal Protocol Unit (MPU), located within the Bureau of Development Policy (BDP), is the organizational unit within UNDP that manages the implementation of projects financed by the Montreal Protocol Trust Fund. MPU manages the second largest amount of “non-core” funds in UNDP. Currently, MPU has a cumulative portfolio of over 1,973 projects with expenditures of around US$ 450 million.
Montreal Protocol Trust Fund financed projects are highly specialized and sophisticated and leverage the latest in applied engineering and operations management tools and techniques. Most Montreal Protocol Unit (MPU) staff members are externally recruited, private sector experts, with large experience in MLF rules and guidelines. These technical professionals are required to create detailed project plans, conduct project appraisals, and implement project plans in accordance with UNDP’s policies and procedures and MLF rules and guidelines which are in many cases different than UNDP’s on financial reporting.
In addition, MPU has a partnership agreement with the UNDP-GEF unit since early 2005 to manage the implementation of projects financed by the GEF covering Ozone Depleting Substances and Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) on a cost recovery basis. In both Trust Funds, it is critical that donor reporting is done according to their external governing bodies and in formats approved by them. The cumulative portfolio of UNDP-GEF POPs and Ozone projects is currently at US$ 76 million for 80 projects.
The Programme Associate ensures effective execution of the operations of the unit. The Programme Associate supports and promotes a client-oriented approach consistent with UNDP rules and regulations and accountability to the Multilateral Fund as well as other donors for activities related to the Strategic Management of Chemicals and GEF/Chemicals focal area.
