15/23 - Desertification (decisions 15/23 A to D)
78. The Committee approved four draft decisions on this subject, including a draft resolution for submission to the General Assembly, submitted by an ad hoc informal drafting group composed of the representatives of Australia, Brazil, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sudan, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States of America (UNEP/GC.15/CW/L.4).
79. After the adoption of the draft decisions in plenary, the representative of Kenya, commenting on the paragraph 1 of decision 15.23 B, said that his delegation maintained the view that the United Nations Special Account to finance the Plan of Action to Combat Desertification should not be abolished and that it would be appropriate for the Governing Council to review the matter at its sixteenth regular session.
