Duties and Responsibilities

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 support to Colombia for the implementation of the 4th tranche of Stage II of the HCFCs Phase-out Management Plan, as Cooperating Implementing Agency specifically for the following component:

• Technical assistance in policies formulation and implementation.
Under the legal/regulatory framework, the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development (MADS), through its Ozone Technical Unit (UTO), has requested UNEP to hire a consultant to provide support in software development of a Quota Control Tool and documentation related to the Montreal Protocol Controlled Substances for the National Environmental Licensing Authority (ANLA).

ANLA is the entity in charge of verifying the information provided by importers and exporters within the approval process to obtain the import license/registration of both substances and equipment containing controlled substances under the Montreal Protocol. In view of the implementation of the Kigali amendment with the quota control of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and the entry into force of new regulatory instruments to control the entry of equipment with HCFC substances in compliance with phase-out schedules, the aim is to strengthen the operational capacity and the mechanism for controlling quotas and granting approvals that this entity already has.

In line with national legal/regulatory frameworks, the OzonAction Branch in LAC is requesting approval to hire an International or National Consultant to provide support in software development and documentation associated with the Montreal Protocol Controlled Substances Quota Control Tool project for the National Environmental Licensing Authority (ANLA).
