Jump to: navigation, search

Since the late 1980s, the General Assembly has routinely adopted resolutions covering cross-cutting issues related to administrative and budgetary aspects of the financing of United Nations peacekeeping operations separate from the peacekeeping financing resolutions for individual missions.

The main report considered by cross-cutting resolutions are the annual report on the overview of the financing of the United Nations peacekeeping operations.
