RESOLUTION 1982/58
Member Name E82r058

30 July 1982

Caribbean Development and Co-operation Committee of the Economic Commission for Latin America

The Economic and Social Council,

Recognizing that the Caribbean Development and Co-operation Committee was created in 1975 by the Economic Commission for Latin America to act as a co-ordinating body for activities relating to development and co-operation and as a consultative organ of the Commission,

Noting that, at its annual sessions, the Committee drew up a work programme, which was subsequently endorsed by the Commission at its biennial sessions, in particular its seventeenth session, held at Guatemala City from 25 April to 5 May 1977, its eighteenth session, held at La Paz from 18 to 26 April 1979 and its nineteenth session, held at Montevideo from 4 to 15 May 1981,

Considering that the Committee, at its fifth session, held at Kingston from 4 to 10 June 1980, approved a series of urgent projects within the framework of that work programme,

Recalling that the Committee of the Whole of the Commission, at its fourteenth special session, held in New York on 20 November 1980, endorsed that work programme, including the supplementary resources required for 1981, and the additional resources which would be required for the biennium 1982-1983 in order to ensure its implementation,

Bearing in mind Council resolution 1980/56 of 24 July 1980, by which the Council requested the Secretary-General to make appropriate provision for the implementation of those priority projects and for the strengthening of the secretariat of the Caribbean Development and Co-operation Committee in his supplementary budget estimates for 1981 for consideration by the Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions and the Fifth Committee of the General Assembly in the course of the thirty-fifth session of the Assembly, bearing in mind that the implementation of such projects constituted an urgent need,

Noting with appreciation that an additional appropriation of $128,100 for the Caribbean Development and Co-operation Committee was approved by the General Assembly at its thirty-fifth session, thus providing the necessary resources to implement the work programme for the biennium 1980-1981,

Conscious of the fact that the additional resources required for the implementation of that work programme in the biennium 1982-1983 were not included in the presentation of the Secretary-General to the appropriate intergovernmental organs, as a result of the policy of zero growth of the United Nations budget for that biennium,

Noting further that the Committee at its sixth session, held at St.

George's, Grenada, from 4 to 10 November 1981 and at United Nations Headquarters on 3 and 4 February 1982, adopted resolution 10 (VI), in which it stressed once again the importance the Committee attaches to strengthening its secretariat,

Conscious of the fact that without supplementary appropriations for 1983, the implementation of the work programme of the Committee will be severely delayed,

1. Takes note of the determination of Governments members of the Caribbean Development and Co-operation Committee, expressed at its fifth and sixth sessions, to pursue activities aimed at strengthening the secretariat of the Committee, including those measures recommended by the Joint Inspection Unit;

2. Takes note also of the additional resources required for the biennium 1982-1983 in order to carry out the work programme of the Committee, as set out in the report of the Committee on its sixth session;

3. Requests the Secretary-General to consider the possibility of finding, through internal reallocation of resources within the programme budget for the biennium 1982-1983, the additional resources required in 1983 to enable the Committee to carry out its programme of work;

4. Further requests the Secretary-General to consider, within the framework of his general budget policy, which is at present one of no real growth in the regular budget, the inclusion in the proposed programme budget for the biennium 1984-1985 of the additional resources requested by the Committee at its sixth session.
