On behalf of the G-77 and China, Amb. Ramtane Lamamra said that the urgency of implementing the Cairo Programme of Action requires rapid mobilization of human and financial resources to carry out the actions agreed to by the international community. Given the enormous amount of work to be done, the developed countries must provide the resources they committed to in the Programme of Action to support the efforts of the developing countries. With regard to Conference follow-up, the G-77 and China believe that efforts must be made system-wide to enable better coordination among UN agencies and to harmonize procedures for the submission of reports to ECOSOC. The Secretariat should draw up a study on future institutional arrangements for this purpose.
