Report of the Secretary-General on the work of the Organization

Article 98 of the Charter requires the Secretary-General to make an annual report to the General Assembly on the work of the Organization. An item is included in the provisional agenda of the Assembly pursuant to rules 13 (a) and 48 of the rules of procedure, and to resolution 51/241.

At its sixty-second session, the General Assembly took note of the report of the Secretary-General (decision 62/504). An Agenda for Peace: preventive diplomacy and related matters

At its forty-seventh session, in 1992, the General Assembly considered the report of the Secretary-General (A/47/277-S/24111) and adopted resolutions 47/120 A and B.

In November 1992, the President of the General Assembly established an open-ended Working Group of the General Assembly on an Agenda for Peace to consider the recommendations contained in the report.

In March 1995, the President of the General Assembly reconvened the Informal Open-ended Working Group on an Agenda for Peace to discuss the report of the Secretary-General entitled “Supplement to an Agenda for Peace” (A/50/60-S/1995/1) and created four sub-groups on preventive diplomacy and peacemaking, the question of the United Nations-imposed sanctions, coordination and post-conflict peacebuilding.

In September 1997, the General Assembly adopted resolution 51/242, which contained the outcome of the work of two sub-groups.

During the fifty-second and fifty-third sessions, the Presidents of the General Assembly undertook consultations concerning the Working Group’s activities.

Financial situation of the United Nations

The General Assembly, at its forty-ninth session, established the High-level Open-ended Working Group on the Financial Situation of the United Nations (resolution 49/143). The Working Group submitted, through the Fifth Committee, a report on its work (A/49/43). The Working Group continued its work during the fiftieth and fifty-first sessions and submitted two additional reports (A/50/43 and A/51/43).
