A

The General Assembly

Having considered the report of the Negotiating Committee for Extra-Budgetary Funds26/ appointed at the tenth session of the General Assembly, and the recommendation of the Negotiating Committee for a change in the method of securing pledges of contributions to the voluntary programmes,

Having been notified of the views of the Executive Board of the United Nations Children's Fund, 27/ and of those of the Technical Assistance Committee,28/ that these two bodies favour the retention of their present fund-raising procedure,

Recognizing the importance of determining the financial resources for activities and programmes to be financed by voluntary contributions before the reports on such activities and programmes are considered and acted upon by the General Assembly,

Recognizing further the need to change the existing procedure for obtaining financial support for those programmes of the United Nations financed by voluntary contributions for which those contributions fall considerably short of the financial targets set for them,

1. Decides:

(a) In the case of the United Nations Children's Fund, to retain the present year-round fund-raising procedure;

(b) In the case of the Expanded Programme of Technical Assistance, to retain the present system of a special pledging conference, to be held at the initiative of the Negotiating Committee;

(c) To convene, during the twelfth session of the General Assembly, an ad hoc committee of the whole Assembly, under the chairmanship of the President of the session, where pledges of voluntary contributions for the two refugee programmes for the following financial year would be announced, with separate meetings dedicated to each programme;

2. Decides further that States not Members of the United Nations, but members of one or more of the specialized agencies, shall be invited to attend meetings of the ad hoc committee for the purpose of announcing their pledges to the two refugee programmes.

662nd plenary meeting,
27 February 1957.
