Duties and Responsibilities

1. Purpose.

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment." Its mandate is to coordinate the development of environmental policy consensus by keeping the global environment under review and bringing emerging issues to the attention of governments and the international community for action. UNEP's Law Division works with international and national partners, providing technical assistance and capacity development for the implementation of environmental policy, and strengthening the environmental management capacity of developing countries and countries with economies in transition.

UNEP is an Implementing Agency of the Multilateral Fund of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. That role is discharged through the Law Division's OzonAction Branch, whose goal is to enable developing countries to meet and sustain their compliance obligations under the treaty. OzonAction’s Compliance Assistance Programme (CAP) provides a range of services and project implementation support to assist those countries. As part of the latter, the Latin America CAP team provides technical assistance for the control of trade of HCFC-based substances and equipment, as part of the activities for the implementation of the HCFC (hydrochlorofluorocarbons) phase-out management plan - Stage I, fifth tranche - in Honduras.

In line with national legal/regulatory frameworks, the Government of Honduras, through its National Ozone Unit (NOU), has requested UNEP to hire a consultant to train at least 80 customs and enforcement officers on the effective control of imports of HCFC and HCFC-based equipment.
