Chapter Summary

The General Assembly requested the UN Secretary-General by Resolution 47/181 of 22 December 1992 to submit a report on an Agenda for Development, as a complementary document to the Agenda for Peace submitted in summer 1992. The Agenda was to make suggestions to strengthen the role of the UN in the development sector, as well as proposals concerning the future relation of the UN with the Bretton Woods institutions. The agenda closely links peace, economy, environment, social justice and democracy as the five main dimensions of development. Boutros Boutros-Ghali emphasized three goals in these recommendations: 1.To strengthen and revitalize the international cooperation for development in general, to overcome the fatigue of the donors; 2.To establish a stronger, more efficient and more coherent multilateral system for supporting development; and 3.To increase the efficiency of the UN proper and of the UN system as a whole.
