United Nations financing and programming

In 1995, the United Nations financial crisis continued to deepen, with unpaid assessed contributions totalling $2.3 billion at year’s end. References to the critical financial situation were made by many Heads of State and Government who addressed the Special Commemorative Meeting of the General Assembly on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the Organization. In its Declaration on the Occasion of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the United Nations, the Assembly stated: "In order to carry out its work effectively, the United Nations must have adequate resources. Member States must meet, in full and on time, their obligation to bear the expenses of the Organization, as apportioned by the General Assembly. That apportionment should be established on the basis of criteria agreed to and considered to be fair by Member States."
