total value of priority items from the Oil-for-Food Programme’s
humanitarian pipeline that can be shipped to Iraq for emergency
needs has reached $1.2 billion. Most of these supplies are in the
food ($551 million), electricity ($293 million), agriculture ($184
million) and health ($126 million) sectors.
The Office of the Iraq
Programme and UN agencies and programmes
actively involved (*) in the review of the Oil-for-Food pipeline,
will coordinate with the Authority representing the occupying
powers, to prioritize contracts for the next six months, as provided
Council resolution 1483 of 22 May, 2003.
the regular monthly food ration resumed this week (1 June).
ration includes 9 kg of wheat flour, 3 kg of rice, 250 grams of
pulses, 1 litre of oil, 2 kg of sugar, 200 grams of tea, 3.6 kg of
infant formula, 500 grams of detergent and one piece of toilet soap
per person. Pulses are in short supply and milk powder is absent
from the June food “basket” because of low in-country stocks. UN
assessment teams also report that some facilities under the Targeted
Nutrition Programme (TNP) in the central and southern governorates,
have been looted of therapeutic milk and high protein biscuits.
