Programme budget of the United Nations Environment Programme, 1986-1987 (decision 13/14)

A draft decision on this subject was recommended by the Committee of the whole (UNEP/GC.13/L.28/Add.3). The Committee had approved a draft decision submitted by the Drafting Committee of the permanent Representatives to UNEP, as amended by the Group of 77 and the representative of Egypt, France and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The draft decision was adopted by consensus at the 14th meeting of the session, on 23 May.

Three representatives expressed reservations concerning the procedure for the establishment of priorities and suggested that the percentage allocated to Earthwatch should be reduced from 16.3 per cent to 14.3 per cent, while the percentage allocated to Desertification should be increased from 10.0 per cent to 12.0 per cent. Three others strongly opposed the alteration of the original percentages.
