Operational activities for development

In 1991, a year marked by the widening of the economic gap between the industrialized North and the developing South, the United Nations continued its efforts to alleviate the situation in the developing countries. During 1990 the organizations of the United Nations system provided a total of $8.5 billion to those countries in official development assistance. Of that amount, $4.7 billion was given in grants and $3.8 billion in concessional loans. Concessional resources (development grants and concessional loans) grew by 16 per cent in 1990 against a net decline in 1989.
