NEW ZEALAND:

John McKinnon said that New Zealand recently announced a 20% increase in its 1995 contribution to UNFPA. At the international level, regular review by the General Assembly will be necessary and any reporting requirements by member States should be realistic. There is no need for new institutional or governance structures, however, there should be a comprehensive review of the roles of the Population Commission, the Population Division of the UN Secretariat and UNFPA at the 1995 ECOSOC meeting. UNFPA/UNDP Board should give more attention to governing UNFPA.
