United Nations industrial development organization terms of reference for personnel under individual service agreement (isa)

Organizational context

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is the specialized agency of the United Nations that promotes industrial development for poverty reduction, inclusive globalization and environmental sustainability. The mission of UNIDO, as described in the Lima Declaration adopted at the fifteenth session of the UNIDO General Conference in 2013, is to promote and accelerate inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID) in Member States.

The relevance of ISID as an integrated approach to all three pillars of sustainable development is recognized by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which will frame United Nations and country efforts towards sustainable development in the next fifteen years. UNIDO’s mandate is fully recognized in SDG-9, which calls to “Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation”.

The relevance of ISID, however, applies in greater or lesser extent to all SDGs. Accordingly, the Organization’s programmatic focus is structured in four strategic priorities : Creating shared prosperity ; Advancing economic competitiveness ; Safeguarding the environment ; and Strengthening knowledge and institutions.

Each of these programmatic fields of activity contains a number of individual programmes, which are implemented in a holistic manner to achieve effective outcomes and impacts through UNIDO’s four enabling functions : (i) technical cooperation ; (ii) analytical and research functions and policy advisory services ; (iii) normative functions and standards and quality-related activities ; and (iv) convening and partnerships for knowledge transfer, networking and industrial cooperation. Such core functions are carried out in Departments/Offices in its Headquarters, Regional Offices and Hubs and Country Offices.

Department of Environment (PTC/ENV) context

The responsibility of the Department is to contribute to inclusive and sustainable industrial development by improving the environmental performance, resource productivity and safety of existing, as well as by supporting the creation of new industries providing environmental goods and services. It does so by : promoting industrial resource efficiency to strengthen green industry and improve the effective use of natural resources including in particular materials and water ; assisting developing countries and countries with economies in transition to achieve the objectives of and compliance with Multilateral Environmental Agreements ; and by working to reduce the release of industrial pollutants in the environment.

The Department thereby encourages industrial development for economic growth that is resource-efficient as well as protective of the natural environment and human health, and keeps workers, communities and consumers safe. Its activities serve to improve competitiveness and access to markets, particularly for small and medium enterprises.

To this end, the Department acts as the focal point within UNIDO for various Multilateral Environmental Agreements and leads or co-hosts relevant global policy and deployment frameworks, as among them the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer and its Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants and the Minamata Convention on Mercury, as well as other relevant international initiatives and conventions such as the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM), the 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP SCP) and the International Resources Panel (IRP). The department coordinates its service delivery with the services offered by other technical departments, and by other relevant organizational units of UNIDO.

Project context

The Executive Committee of the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol, at its 62nd Meeting, approved stage I of the HCFC phase-out management plan (HPMP) for Burkina Faso to achieve the 35% reduction in HCFC consumption by 2020, at the amount of US $580,000 plus agency support cost of US $75,400 for UNEP as the lead agency and US $500,000 plus agency support costs of US $37,500 for UNIDO as the cooperating agency.

The Government had agreed to establish as its starting point for sustained aggregate reduction in HCFC consumption the estimated baseline of 27.79 ODP tonnes, calculated using actual consumption reported in 2009 and revised estimated consumption for 2010.

At the 70th Meeting, the Agreement was updated based on the established HCFC baseline for compliance, and the revised starting point for sustained aggregate reduction in HCFC consumption was 28.9 ODP tonnes, calculated using consumption of 26.7 ODP tonnes and 31.0 ODP tonnes reported for 2009 and 2010, respectively, under Article 7 of the Montreal Protocol.

At the 80th Meeting, the Agreement had been updated based on the revised starting point and funding level ; the revised starting point for sustained aggregate reduction in HCFC consumption was 18.00 ODP tonnes, based on the verification report submitted to the 80th meeting calculated using the average 2011-2016 HCFC consumption, and the revised funding level for stage I of the HPMP for Burkina Faso was US $630,000, plus agency support costs, in accordance with decision 60/44(f)(xii).

The Government of Burkina Faso committed to the following control measures with the support of funding and technical assistance from the Multilateral Fund and implementing agency :

(i) Freeze the consumption of HCFCs in 2013 to the agreed baseline figure ;
(ii) (ii) Reduce consumption of HCFCs by 10% from 2015 ;
(iii) (iii) Reduce consumption of HCFCs by 35% by 2020.
(iv)

At the 80th meeting the Government of Burkina Faso, through UNEP, has submitted the outstanding verification reports for the 2013 to 2016 period, together with the third tranche of stage I of the HPMP. The Government has implemented, with the support of UNEP, the recommendations contained in the verification report for HCFC consumption and strengthening the institutional mechanisms to ensure accurate customs, licensing, quota, and data reporting through an upgraded customs training programme.

The national consultant is expected to carry out the following tasks in close consultation with UNIDO project manager, other international and national consultants, the National Ozone Office, beneficiary companies, and other stakeholders.
