REPORT OF THE FOURTH MEETING OF THE CONFERENCE OF THE PARTIES TO THE VIENNA CONVENTION FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE OZONE LAYER

INTRODUCTION

1. The fourth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer was held at the Herradura International Conference Centre, San José, on 25 and 27 November 1996.

I. OPENING OF THE MEETING

A. Statement by the President of the Conference of the Parties at its third meeting

3. In his opening remarks, the President of the Conference of the Parties at its third meeting thanked the Government of Costa Rica for hosting the fourth meeting of the Conference and expressed his gratitude to all participants for the support extended to himself and the other members of the Bureau since the third meeting. Many important developments had taken place since that meeting, including new ratifications of the Convention, bringing the total number of Parties to 162, which reflected the world-wide concern for protecting the ozone layer. Noting the importance of scientific research to the success of the Vienna Convention and Montreal Protocol, he recalled the Third Meeting of the Ozone Research Managers held earlier in the year and drew attention to the recommendations contained in their report. The Bureau had endorsed those recommendations and he called on the Parties to support them. He appealed to the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to assist in efforts to safeguard the ozone layer by contributing funds to support ozone monitoring, training and targeted research in developing countries. Drawing attention to the proposed budgets for the Trust Fund for the Vienna Convention, he appealed to all Parties to pay their contributions in full and on time.

B. Statement by the representative of the Government of Costa Rica

4. The statement of His Excellency Mr. José Maria Figueres, President of Costa Rica, to the Eighth Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol, as reflected in the report of that Meeting (UNEP/OzL.Pro.8/..), applies mutatis mutandis to the fourth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Vienna Convention.

C. Statement by the Executive Director of the UnitedNations Environment Programme (UNEP)

5. The statement of Ms. Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Executive Director of the UnitedNations Environment Programme (UNEP) to the Eighth Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol, as reflected in the report of that Meeting (UNEP/OzL.Pro.8/..), applies mutatis mutandis to the fourth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Vienna Convention.

D. Statement by the Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO)

6.Mr. R. D. Bojkov, speaking on behalf of the Secretary General informed the meeting that, during the current 1996 season, ozone content over the Southern Polar region was already the lowest ever recorded.

a)

1100 and

1300

Classification of the posts in UNEP is currently taking place in accordance with the guidelines of the UnitedNations. Provision is made for upgrading, if found necessary, in the classification and if approved by the Executive Director, after review.

The salaries are updated to reflect the current and estimated future salary levels in Nairobi.

     

b)

The conference-servicing costs have been based on the following assumptions:

 

1322

The 1999 meeting of the Conference of the Parties and its Preparatory Meeting will be held in Nairobi, using six languages.

 

1324

One Bureau meeting is scheduled for 1999.

 

1327

One Ozone Research Managers meeting will be held in 1999, in Geneva. In accordance with Conference decision III/6, the meeting planned for 1995 was rescheduled for 1996. Therefore, the approved budget for organizing this meeting in 1995 has been carried over to 1996.

     

c)

1600

Travel on official business has been increased to $45,000 in 1999 to cover the cost of organizing the Ozone Research Managers meeting in Geneva and the fifth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Vienna Convention.

     

d)

The average cost of participation is assumed to be $5,000 per participant in 1997, with no more than one person's travel cost being covered for each country and using the most appropriate economical fare and United Nations per diem allowances.

     
 

3304

The participation costs for the Bureau meeting are based on there being four participants from developing countries or countries with economies in transition.

 

3307

One Ozone Research Managers meeting will be held in 1999, in Geneva. Funding is reserved for participants from developing countries. In accordance with Conference decisionIII/6, the meeting planned for 1995 was rescheduled for 1996, and, therefore, the budget approved for participation in this meeting in 1995 has been carried over to 1996.

e)

4100

The cost of expendable equipment has been increased marginally to cover inflation.

     

g)

4301

The level of rent has been increased to current levels from 1998 onwards.

h)

Contingency

If the need arises, the Secretariat will request the Conference of the Parties to review the contingency.
