Assistance to the drought-stricken areas of Somalia

The Economic and Social Council,

Recalling General Assembly resolution 41/192 of 8 December 1986 on special programmes of economic assistance,

Deeply concerned that drought is again threatening life and causing serious loss of livestock and property in Somalia,

Bearing in mind that the Government of Somalia estimates that 1.6 million people, including 700,000 children, are affected by the drought and that 800 people have died,

Noting that on 29 April 1987 the Government of Somalia appealed for emergency assistance and has taken steps to co-ordinate, together with the United Nations and the donor community, the relief efforts, including the establishment on 30 April 1987 of a drought action committee,

Aware of the relief needs as set out in the information report of 5 May 1987 of the United Nations Disaster Relief Co-ordinator,

1. Commends the strenuous efforts of the Government of Somalia to alleviate the hardship suffered by the victims of the drought;

2. Requests Member States, non-governmental organizations and organizations of the United Nations system to participate in the concerted effort to alleviate the adverse effects of the drought on the population of Somalia;

3. Requests the Secretary-General to report to the Economic and Social Council at its second regular session of 1988 on the progress achieved in the implementation of the present resolution.
