Fifty-ninth session
Item 40 (b) of the provisional agenda*
Strengthening of the coordination of humanitarian and disaster relief assistance of the United Nations, including special economic assistance: special economic assistance to individual countries or regions

Summary

The present report, prepared in response to requests made by the General Assembly at its fifty-seventh and fifty-eighth sessions, provides information on humanitarian and rehabilitation assistance given to countries undergoing or emerging from a humanitarian crisis induced by conflict or such natural causes as drought. The report concludes with the recommendation that the situation in certain of these countries, which have passed the crisis stage and now benefit primarily from reconstruction and development assistance rather than relief aid, should no longer be considered under the agenda item entitled "Strengthening of the coordination of humanitarian and disaster relief assistance of the United Nations, including special economic assistance".
