Duties and Responsibilities
a). Organizational setting
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.

The overall objective of the UNEP’s Economy Division is to encourage decision makers in government, local authorities and industry to develop and adopt policies, strategies and practices and technologies that promote sustainable patterns of consumption and production, make efficient use of natural resources, ensure safe management of chemicals and contribute to making trade and environment policies mutually supportive. It promotes the development, use and transfer of policies, technologies, economic instruments, managerial practices and other tools that assist in environmentally sound decision making and the building of corresponding activities.

The GEF Chemicals and Waste Unit of the Chemicals and Health Branch is responsible for the development and management of all GEF projects implemented by UNEP in the Chemicals and Wastes focal area. To date, the team has a portfolio of 100 projects represented over $200 mil of GEF investment supporting countries in their implementation of the Stockholm Convention, the Minamata Convention and SAICM.

As part of its duties, the Chemicals GEF team is in charge of supervising a portfolio of ongoing projects, develop new projects to be submitted to the GEF and also assist countries to close finished projects. The Chemicals team also provides coaching and advice to UNEP colleagues in the branch and in other divisions.

The GEF team has been successful in developing a series of projects under a Programme (Financing Agrochemical Reduction and Management, FARM) which now require the completion of the package for GEF CEO endorsement. Supervision of the development of these proposals has been assigned across the GEF team but the volume of work to be undertaken requires additional inputs from a specialist consultant with experience in drafting of donor funded proposals. The development of the submissions is time sensitive and the work load requires the support to be available as early as possible.

The child projects being implemented by UNEP are in their Project Preparation Grant phase, with the respective Executing Agencies being responsible for developing the projects in coordination with their partners. The Lead Consultant will be responsible for writing up the project document packages to ensure consistency and high-quality submissions, in close coordination with the Executing Agencies to obtain inputs and technical information.

3. Internalization of GEF FARM global project and assisting in other project development and supervision activities as required based on the review of project needs by the Chemicals and Waste Portfolio Manager;
