EXPLANATORY NOTES FOR THE PROPOSED 1999 AND 2000 BUDGETS FOR THE TRUST FUND FOR THE MONTREAL PROTOCOL

 

General: All figures are in US dollars (US$).

Budget line Comment
1103‑1105 and 1300 Classification of the posts in UNEP is currently taking place in accordance with the guidelines of the United Nations. Financial provision is made by the Parties for the upgrading of these posts and re‑designation, if found necessary, in the classification and if approved by the Executive Director, after review for the year 2000.
1106 The Government of the Netherlands is funding the post of the Programme Officer (Data Systems) as a Junior Programme Officer from 13 July 1998 for a maximum duration of three years. The budgeted amounts have been retained in the budget for 1999, since the budget for the year 1999 has already been approved and the contributions by Parties been worked out accordingly. No amount will be spent from the Secretariat budget from this budget line in 1998 or 1999.
1321 - 1326 Necessary funds may be transferred from the conference‑servicing budget lines (1321 - 1326) should such services be required to be rendered either by individual consultancies or corporate contracts. The total cost of organizing the meeting should not, however, exceed the amounts agreed in this budget.
  The conference‑servicing costs have been based on the following assumptions:
  (a) 1321: One meeting of the Open‑ended Working Group will be held each year during 1999 and 2000 in Nairobi or Geneva using six languages.
  (b) 1322: The Meeting of the Parties and its preparatory meeting (OEWG) will be held in Nairobi in both years and both the years in six languages. When meetings are not held in Nairobi, the incremental cost will be paid by the host Government.
  (c) 1323: The Technology and Economic Assessment Panel has been allocated $37,000 to cover the communication and other sundry costs related to the work of Panel members from developing countries and countries with economies in transition.
  (d) 1324: Two Bureau meetings are scheduled for each of the years 1999 and 2000.
  (e) 1325: Two Implementation Committee meetings, in English only, are assumed to take place in Nairobi.
  (f) 1326: One informal consultation a year, in English only, is assumed to take place in Nairobi.
3300 This item includes assistance to participants from countries with economies in transition in addition to participants from developing countries. The average cost of participation from these countries is assumed to be $5,000 per participant in 1998, with no more than one person's travel costs being covered for each country and using the most appropriate economical fare and the United Nations per diem allowances.
3304 The participation costs for the two Bureau meetings are based on four participants from developing countries or countries with economies in transition in each meeting.
3305 The participation costs for the two Bureau meetings are based on four participants from developing countries or countries with economies in transition in each meeting.
3306 Funds are required for assisting non‑Parties to participate in the meetings of the Protocol for promoting awareness regarding the benefits of ratification of the Protocol.
4200 The Secretariat is constantly developing its electronic data processing systems in order to make the documentation of the Protocol and the Convention available electronically to the Parties. This development requires updating of the existing computer equipment, and procurement of necessary peripherals and software licenses.
