Role of the drug control bodies of the United Nations at Vienna

The Economic and Social Council,

Recalling General Assembly resolution 40/122 of 13 December 1985, by which the Assembly decided to convene an International Conference on Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking in 1987,

Aware of the intensive preparations being made for that Conference within the United Nations system, and by Governments and non-governmental organizations,

Taking fully into account the recommendations of the Group of High-Level Intergovernmental Experts to Review the Efficiency of the Administrative and Financial Functioning of the United Nations,

Bearing in mind the recommendations contained in General Assembly resolution 41/213 of 19 December 1986,

4. Also requests the Secretary-General to provide adequate financial information about current and future drug control activities so that the Commission on Narcotic Drugs can make recommendations on priorities on the basis of all relevant information;

5. Further requests the Secretary-General, in order to strengthen the activities and existing mechanisms of the United Nations in the area of international control of drug abuse and illicit trafficking, and with a view to the implementation of the follow-up activities of the International Conference on Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, to give this sector priority, as a matter of urgency, in the allocation of available United Nations resources;
