Duties and Responsibilities

UNEP’s Early Action Support programme team is currently supporting the execution of the GEF-funded project implemented in Montenegro focused on the preparation of the update of Montenegro’s NBSAP. The NBSAP and biodiversity frameworks in Montenegro are not fully aligned with the KMGBF. Furthermore, lessons learned from the last round of updating NBSAPs indicate that challenges persist in terms of non-alignment of national targets with global targets, lack of a financing plan for NBSAP implementation, inadequate implementation due to delays in updating NBSAPs, as well as inadequate monitoring. Alignment will help catalyze implementation of the KMGBF and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and its protocols. There are now only six years remaining for Parties and the global community to achieve the agreed KMGBF targets. Within this context UNEP and the Government of Montenegro are implementing this Early Action Support project, with the specific objective to fast-track readiness and early actions to implement the KMGBF. The project provides financial and technical support to Montenegro as a GEF-eligible Party to the CBD in its work to review and align the national targets, NBSAP, policy frameworks, monitoring frameworks and finance with the KMGBF. Under the overall supervision of the National Project Coordinator for the Early Action Support project, the National Consultant – Coordination Assistant will support the coordination between the Ministry, the NBSAP Working group and the Project team. the National Consultant – Coordination Assistant will be responsible for the following:
