K. Review of the financial situation in the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA)

16. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) has been faced with a severe financial crisis for the last few years. This has compromised the ability of UNRWA to meet the need for basic services in education, health and relief and social services. The main objective of this report is to contribute to the amelioration of UNRWA’s financial situation by examining possible cost-saving efficiency measures without prejudice to the level and quality of services. It will also look into income-generating projects, and possibly additional or new sources of contributions. JIU carried out a previous review of UNRWA in 1983 (A/38/143, of 1 August).
