United Nations Fund for Drug Abuse Control

3446. United Nations Fund for Drug Abuse Control

The General Assembly, Recalling its resolution 3145 (XXVIII) of 14 December 1973 concerning the urgent need for providing adequate financial resources to enable the United Nations Fund for Drug Abuse Control to continue and expand its activities to assist the developing countries concerned in carrying out their respective narcotics control programmes, Aware that the financial resources of the Fund remain insufficient in the face of the continuing serious menace of drug abuse,

1. Notes with satisfaction that the United Nations Fund for Drug Abuse Control, in collaboration with Governments and international organizations, has undertaken a number of activities which have contributed to the strengthening of national drug control programmes and thereby significantly advanced intentional efforts to reduce drug abuse and illicit traffic in drugs;

2. Endorses Economic and Social Council resolution 1937 (LVIII) of 6 May 1975 appealing to Governments for generous and sustained contributions to the Fund;

3. Requests the Secretary-General to communicate this renewed appeal to Governments;

4. Further requests the Secretary-General and the Executive Director of the Fund to use their good offices to the maximum extent possible to promote early and generous responses to the present appeal.
