Report to the council: present and future programme, statement made at the Twenty-eighth Session of the UNDP Governing Council, United Nations, New York, 12 June 1981.
New York, N.Y., UNFPA, . 19 p.This report reviews: 1) United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) performance in 1980, including financial expenditures; 2) projects and programs submitted to the Governing Council for approval; 3) a work plan and request for approval authority; 4) the UNDP operational reserve; 5) the future role of UNFPA; 6) the proposed World Population Conference in 1984; and 7) the State of the World Population Report--which appears as the 1st chapter of the printed version of the UNFPA's annual report. The final figure for pledges and contributions for 1980 was US$125.5 million, an increase of 12% over 1979. Expenditures totaled US$147.5 million. Family planning programs continued to absorb the largest % of UNFPA allocations--41.7%. In the face of growing demand from the developing countries for assistance and limited resources available UNFPA will continue to concentrate on countries with the most urgent population problems and needs. It is necessary that the priority country system be revised or updated every 5 years in order to ensure that UNFPA will continue to respond to changing circumstnaces and needs in the developing world. In the future, the Fund intends to promote a more broad-based, multi-sectoral approach to population issues. In addition, the Fund will emphasize developing self-reliance by putting a time limit on various projects receiving UNFPA support.
