The country programme is the first activity that the Multilateral Fund finances in an Article 5 country. It maps out the strategy and the action plan that the country will follow to eliminate the ODS consumption and production according to the Montreal Protocol schedules. The country programme is also the basis for the Multilateral Fund to finance projects and activities in countries.
Article 5 countries with a country programme present annually to the Executive Committee information on progress made in the implementation of the country programme, in accordance with the decision of the Executive Committee on implementation of country programmes. The Secretariat uses these data when analysing the status of compliance of Article 5 countries.
Since April 2007, a web-based data entry system based on the country programme format for use by national ozone units has been available. Pursuant to decision 63/4(b)(ii), the Secretariat updated the web-based reporting system to remove CFC, CTC and halon for the 2012 reporting year and beyond.
Thus, for reporting data for 2012 and beyond the following link should be used: www.multilateralfund.org/cpnew
. If it is not possible to use the web-based form, country programme data should be submitted using the data reporting forms in Microsoft Excel format for the appropriate year, which can be downloaded from this page.
The Fund Secretariat also developed a Practical Manual for Reporting in order to give ozone officers clearer advice and directions for completing these reporting forms. The manual was developed based on the earlier instructions on country programme data reporting, and also incorporates feedback received from ozone officers when reporting data for previous years. The manual is available as a file for downloading.
