Economic assistance, disasters and emergency relief

During 1989, the United Nations continued to provide special assistance to countries facing severe economic hardship. Several nations received aid for reconstruction, rehabilitation and development following natural or man-made disasters. In December, the General Assembly, by resolution 44/236, proclaimed the 1990s the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction, and adopted an international framework of policy measures, co-operation and action to mitigate the effects of disasters.
