Economic assistance, disasters and emergency relief

The United Nations continued in 1990 to provide special assistance to countries facing severe economic hardship, as well as those seriously affected by natural and man-made disasters. In December, the General Assembly requested the Secretary-General to determine means of facilitating the delivery of appropriate humanitarian assistance to victims of natural disasters and similar emergency situations. It expressed its appreciation to the Secretary-General for his continuing support for efforts to promote a new international humanitarian order and called on Governments, the United Nations system and intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations to further develop international cooperation in the humanitarian field.
