Fund Secretariat

The Fund Secretariat was established in 1991 under the Multilateral Fund to assist the Executive Committee in the discharge of its functions.  It is co-located with the United Nations Environment Programme Environment and based in Montreal, Canada.

The Fund Secretariat assists in ensuring that the objectives of the Multilateral Fund are met in projects and activities of the Fund and provides liaison between the Executive Committee, the parties to the Montreal Protocol and the Implementing Agencies.  Its activities include: the development of a three-year plan and budget and a system for fund disbursement; management of the business planning cycle of the Multilateral Fund; monitoring the expenditures and activities of the Implementing Agencies; preparation of documents requested by the Executive Committee; review, assessment, monitoring and evaluation of all projects.
