Requests the Secretary-General to include in his report on international co-operation for the eradication of poverty in developing countries a section analysing the role that operational activities for development could play in that area; urges developed countries to increase their official development assistance substantially, including contributions to operational activities of the UN system; calls for more integrated and co-ordinated programming of UN system co-operation, in which programming processes would be based on an overall national programme framework for operational activities for development to be prepared by the recipient Government, with a view to submitting it to the organizations of the UN system for their support and funding; decides that, in order to fully enable Governments to assume the execution of programmes and projects funded by the UN system for development, the following changes should be undertaken: (a) the present rules and procedures for government/national execution should be adapted; (b) procedures pertaining to programme and project formulation, design, appraisal, implementation, procurement, reporting, monitoring and evaluation should be simplified and harmonized; (c) governing bodies should review existing budget, audit and other relevant practices; recommends, within the framework of more decentralized and strengthened capacity of the UN system at the country level, the delegation of authority from the headquarters to the country level by the organs and organizations of the UN system in order to develop a country-focused approach.
