I. Cooperation between the United Nations and regional and other organizations

Cooperation between the United Nations and the Southern African Development Community

The question of cooperation between the United Nations and the Southern African Development Coordination Conference was included in the agenda of the thirty-seventh session of the General Assembly, in 1982, at the request of Botswana, on behalf of the States members of the Southern African Development Coordination Conference (resolution 37/248).

On 17 August 1992, the Southern African Development Coordination Conference was transformed into the Southern African Development Community.

The General Assembly continued to consider the question at its thirty-eighth to fortieth sessions, subsequently at its forty-second to fifty-fourth sessions on a biennial basis and at its fifty-sixth, fifty-seventh and fifty-ninth sessions (resolutions 38/160, 39/215, 40/195, 42/181, 44/221, 46/160, 48/173, 50/118, 52/204, 54/227, 57/44 and 59/140, and decision 56/443).

At its sixty-first session, the General Assembly called upon the international community to strengthen support for the measures taken by the Southern African Development Community in fighting HIV/AIDS and other communicable diseases; requested the Secretary-General, in consultation with the Executive Secretary of the Community, to enhance contacts aimed at promoting and harmonizing further cooperation between the two organizations; and also requested the Secretary-General  to submit to the Assembly at its sixty-third session a report on cooperation between the United Nations and the Community (resolution 61/51).
