Operational activities for development

In 1988, some $7 billion in concessional loans and grants was made available to developing countries through the United Nations system, representing 14 per cent of total official development assistance to those countries from all sources during the year. Following its consideration of the annual report of the Director-General for Development and International Economic Co-operation on United Nations operational activities, the General Assembly, in December, invited members of the organs and organizations of the system to address operational activities for development in their governing bodies, with a view to arriving at a co-ordinated and system-wide approach to the issue.
