Appeals urgently to Member States, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the United Nations organizations concerned and voluntary agencies to provide the Government of the Sudan with the resources necessary for the prompt implementation of the development assistance projects envisaged in the annex to the report of the Secretary-General;
