99/24.  Funding situation of UNDP and UNFPA

 

The Executive Board

1.      Notes with concern the continuing and significant decline in core contributions to the United Nations Development Programme and to the United Nations Population Fund and in particular the resulting decline in resources available for programme activities;

2.      Also notes with concern the impact that such resource shortfalls have on the capacity of the United Nations Development Programme and that of the United Nations Population Fund to meet the increasing needs of programme countries for their assistance;

3.      Requests the Administrator and the Executive Director to bring this critical resource situation to the attention of the Secretary-General with a view to mobilizing the support of world political leaders in order to reverse the trend of declining contributions to the United Nations Development Programme and to the United Nations Population Fund.
