Assistance to Cape Verde

Recalling its resolutions 32/99 of 13 December 1977, 33/127 of 19 December 1978, 34/119 of 14 December 1979 and 35/104 of 5 December 1980, in which the international community was requested to provide an appropriate level of resources for the implementation of the programme of assistance to Cape Verde as envisaged in the subsequent reports of the Secretary-General,

Noting that Cape Verde, one of the least developed, as well as a most seriously affected island country, and a member of the Permanent Inter-State Committee on Drought Control in the Sahel, is in need of increased substantial assistance to overcome its economic backwardness,

Stressing the urgent need to implement the relevant resolutions of the General Assembly, which endorsed the programme of assistance to Cape Verde,

Recognizing the strenuous efforts displayed by the Government and people of Cape Verde in the process of their socio-economic development, despite existing constraints,

Recognizing also the essential role of both short-term and long-term international assistance in the process of development of Cape Verde,

Gravely concerned that the expected harvest for 1982 has been lost as a result of the failure of the seasonal rain and the recurrence of drought,

Taking into account the results of the United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries, held in Paris from 1 to 14 September 1981, in particular the substantial New Programme of Action for the 1980s for the Least Developed Countries, adopted on 14 September 1981,

Taking into account also the country programme of Cape Verde presented to the Conference, in which a five-year plan as well as long-term planning were delineated,

6. Requests the organizations, organs and bodies of the United Nations system to continue and to increase their assistance to Cape Verde, to co-operate with the Secretary-General in his efforts to mobilize resources for the implementation of the programme of assistance and to report periodically to the Secretary-General on the measures they have taken and the resources they have made available for assistance to that country;

7. Calls upon the international community to continue to contribute generously to all appeals for food and fodder assistance made by the Government of Cape Verde or on its behalf by the specialized agencies and the other competent organizations of the United Nations system to help it cope with the critical situation in the country;

8. Draws once again the attention of the international community to the special account which was established at United Nations Headquarters by the Secretary-General, in accordance with General Assembly resolution 32/99, for the purpose of facilitating the channelling of contributions to Cape Verde;

(a) To continue his efforts to mobilize the necessary resources for implementing the programme of development assistance to Cape Verde;
