Summaries of work and references


●  Item 58: Operational activities for development: operational activities for development of the United Nations system



At its thirty-ninth session, in 1984, the General Assembly established the United Nations Development Fund for Women as a separate and identifiable entity in autonomous association with the United Nations Development Programme; and requested the Consultative Committee on the Voluntary Fund for the United Nations Decade for Women to monitor the process of implementing the arrangements for the management of the Fund and to reflect its views in the annual report on the Fund to the General Assembly (resolution 39/125).

At its sixtieth session, the General Assembly approved the programme of work of the Second Committee for the sixty-first session, which contained this item and its sub-item (decision 60/549). The item and its sub-item have therefore been included in the provisional agenda of the sixty-first session.
