Cooperation between the United Nations and the Pacific Islands Forum

This item was included in the provisional agenda of the fifty-sixth session of the General Assembly, in 2001, at the request of Kiribati (A/56/144, annex).

The General Assembly considered the item at its fifty-sixth, fifty-seventh and fifty-ninth sessions (resolutions 56/41, 57/37 and 59/20).

At its sixty-first session, the General Assembly requested that the United Nations continue to assist the Pacific Islands Forum in the timely implementation of relevant United Nations mandates, and invited States to contribute to the Biketawa Trust Fund for confidence-building measures and conflict prevention; requested that the Department of Political Affairs of the Secretariat and the United Nations Development Programme, together with the Forum, promote joint cooperative needs assessment missions in the region; called upon the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to provide technical support to Forum members in promoting awareness of all international human rights treaties; and requested the Secretary-General to submit to the Assembly at its sixty-third session a report on the implementation of the resolution (resolution 61/48).
