United Nations financing and programming

In 1994, the United Nations continued to operate under difficult financial conditions brought about by the non-payment of assessed contributions by a number of Member States to both the regular budget and the budget of several peace-keeping operations. The situation became so critical that, in December, the General Assembly held a general debate on the financial situation and decided to establish a high-level open-ended working group under the chairmanship of its President to consider additional measures aimed at ensuring a sound and viable financial basis for the Organization (resolution 49/143). In addition, the Assembly took steps to streamline the administrative and budgetary aspects of peace-keeping operations (49/233).
