UNDRO is a monitoring, advisory and co-ordinating body with a small organisation, which is not designed to run a major famine relief operation. It is important to have effective co-ordination in places such as Ethiopia, and for that reason we support the action of the United Nations Secretary-General in appointing a special co-ordinator in the form of Mr. Jansson to operate from Addis.
