141. At its Forty-Ninth Session, the Council discussed the arrangements for the Fourteenth Conference Session and, in the light of developments, proposed the following modifications and amplifications to document C 67/2 in which, at its Session in June 1967, it had set out proposals for the arrangements for the Conference Session.
142. The Council recommended to the Conference the addition of the following items to the provisional agenda (C 67/1 - FIRST DRAFT):
Introducing the use of German for interpretation in the General Conference as well as the Regional Conference for Europe, (under Agenda Item 27).
Item 40 should be amended to read:
“Applications for Membership and Associate Membership in the Organization.”
Add under Item 31 “Relationship Agreements with International Organizations” two sub-items:
Draft agreement between the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the Organization of African Unity (OAU).
Progress regarding relationship agreements with Area Banks.
Add under Part I of the Agenda: “FAO/Industry Co-operation (Resolution 5/65 of the Thirteenth Conference Session).”
Add to Item 17, within the parentheses, “Chapter VI-D.”
143. The provisional agenda with the above additions and amendments will be circulated as C 67/1 - SECOND DRAFT.
144. At its Forty-Eighth Session (June 1967), the Council had nominated as General Rapporteur on the Work of the Technical Committees H.J. Kristensen (Denmark). It had also nominated the Rapporteurs of the six Technical Committees. The Council was informed that the Rapporteur who had been nominated for the Technical Committee on Fisheries had been unable to accept, and the Director-General, in consultation with the Chairman of the Council and the Chairman of the Program Committee, had made another nomination. The Rapporteurs of the six Technical Committees were:
|Committee on Agriculture||D.N.R. Webb (New Zealand)|
|Committee on Economics||J. Chonchol (Chile)|
|Committee on Fisheries||J. Adjetey (Ghana)|
|Committee on Forestry and Forest Products||M.L.S.B. Rukuba (Uganda)|
|Committee on Information and Publications||Siribongse Boon-Long (Thailand)|
|Committee on Nutrition||Miss D.F. Hollingsworth (U.K.)|
145. The Council recommended to the Conference the following appointments:
|Chairman of the Conference||Josef Winiewicz (Poland)|
|Commission I||Nor El Ghorfi (Morocco)|
|Commission II||Ralph W. Phillips (U.S.A.)|
|Commission III||Hans-Joachim Scharmer (Germany)|
|Committee-of-the-Whole on Structural Review||A.C.B. Maiden (Australia)|
146. In accordance with the terms of Rule XXIV, paragraph 5(b), of the General Rules of the Organization, the Council elected the following eleven Member Nations to be members of the Nominations Committee:
147. As recommended by the Council at its Forty-Eighth Session, the membership of the Resolutions Committee will comprise the Chairmen of the Program Committee, Finance Committee and CCLM, together with four other members of the General Committee selected by that Committee.
148. The functions of the Resolutions Committee are to examine all draft resolutions whatever their origin before they are submitted to the Commissions or the Plenary of the Conference for approval, and where desirable revise or consolidate them, or recommend that the substance be incorporated in the text of the report.
149. The Council also recommended that both in the Technical Committee and in Commissions of the Conference, as well as in other bodies of the Organization, the number of resolutions be kept to a minimum and that they be confined essentially to formal matters as follows:
proposals of amendment of the Constitution, General Rules and Financial Regulations of the Organization;
recommendations regarding the adoption of international conventions or agreements;
establishment of commissions, committees and working parties of Member Nations and Associate Members or of individuals appointed in their personal capacity, and proposals regarding the statutes, terms of reference and reporting procedures of the foregoing bodies;
convening of general, regional, technical or other conferences, consultations or ad hoc working parties, laying down their terms of reference and reporting procedures;
recommendations or decisions involving commitments by the Organization or regarding certain financial matters such as Working Capital Fund, scale of contributions, adoption of audited accounts;
the adoption of the Program of Work and Budget for the ensuing biennium, which will cover the entire Program of Work and Budget for 1968/69. (It will therefore not be necessary for each Technical Committee to draft a separate resolution regarding the Program and Budget for the sector of work covered by the Committee concerned, although each Committee would be expected to include in its report an expression of views regarding the technical merits and balance of the program).
150. The Resolutions Committee will be required to see that resolutions conform with the above and also to draw attention to any constitutional, program and budgetary aspects that need to be taken into consideration in any draft resolutions proposed for adoption.
151. While the Resolutions Committee will examine all proposed resolutions in the light of its terms of reference, the Program of Work and Budget for the ensuing biennium is adopted by a single resolution and hence proposals already contained in that document do not require specific resolutions, except in so far as they vary from the original proposals. Similarly, certain statutory or formal resolutions will probably need very little change if any. Thus, the main work of the Resolutions Committee will concern resolutions which tend to alter the draft program, or those which make recommendations to governments.
152. The Resolutions Committee cannot decide or amend, but merely recommend to the appropriate body what changes it considers should be made in the text. This it will do before approval by the body concerned. While this would normally mean that the Resolutions Committee should examine each draft resolution before discussion in the Commission or Plenary meeting, that is to say, between the time the resolution is moved from the floor and it is circulated in the official languages for debate, in a number of cases it will be evident that the resolution may not obtain the necessary support in the discussion. In such cases the Resolutions Committee may decide not to take time considering draft texts before the debate on the substance.
153. Accordingly the following system of operation is proposed for the Resolutions Committee:
As soon as a resolution is proposed, the chairman of the body concerned will request the secretariat to have it translated, brought to the attention of the Resolutions Committee and then circulated to the body where it will be discussed.
The Resolutions Committee at that stage will choose between one of four alternatives, which it will indicate at the foot of the text prepared for distribution to the proposing body:
If the text seems in order, the Committee will indicate this.
If modifications or additions which do not alter the substance seem necessary, the Committee will indicate them. These will in many cases concern constitutional, program or financial aspects.
If the resolution does not cover a matter as set out in para. 149 above, the Resolutions Committee will suggest that the substance be incorporated into the narrative text of the Conference or Commission report.
If there is doubt regarding reaching agreement on the substance of the resolution in the proposing body, the Resolutions Committee may request that the substance be debated by the proposing body and that after this debate and the decision upon the substance, the draft resolution be returned to the Resolutions Committee for consideration.
154. In certain cases also, members of the Committee may be delegated to attend the debate where the resolution is discussed either to explain the Committee's views and reasons for any proposed changes, or to follow the debate so as to be able to inform the Resolutions Committee of the background when the text of the resolution comes before the Resolutions Committee.
155. The Resolutions Committee will not wish to delay the proceedings of the Conference. Since the texts of draft resolutions are to be circulated only after the Resolutions Committee has completed its examination, it will be necessary for the Committee to meet on the call of its Chairman.
156. Rule XI, paragraph 3, of the General Rules of the Organization requires that formal proposals be introduced in writing, and shall not be discussed or put to the vote until copies have been circulated to all delegations not later than the day preceding the meeting at which the proposal is to be adopted. The same rule, however, permits the discussion and consideration of amendments to such proposals even though these amendments have not been circulated or have only been circulated on the same day. The Council recommends accordingly that to avoid the risk of additional delays in adoption of texts by the Commissions or Plenary any modifications which the Resolutions Committee might propose to resolutions should be treated as amendments under the foregoing proviso and considered, if necessary, on the day they are circulated by the Resolutions Committee.
157. At its Forty-Eighth Session, the Council had drawn up a provisional timetable for the Conference Session. The Council felt that Commission II should be in a position to consider and report upon the review of statutory bodies and their functions, which has been undertaken in five of the Technical Committees and upon which the General Rapporteur on the Work of Technical Committees might have comments to make in his report to Commission II. The Council therefore proposed that its own report on the review of statutory bodies (C 67/LIM/10) be first considered in Commission II, together with the report on this item by the General Rapporteur. The Chairman of Commission II would forward the views and recommendations of Commission II on this item to the Chairman of Commission III, so that these views and recommendations could be taken into consideration when Commission III dealt with Item 29 of the provisional agenda. Commission III would accordingly have to postpone consideration of Item 29 from the morning of 9 November until the morning of 13 November, by which time Commission II's Report should be available to Commission III.
158. The Council also recommended that the date for the election of the Director-General, which it had proposed at its Forty-Eighth Session be 22 November, be advanced to the morning of Saturday 18 November in order to permit a time-lag between ballots or series of ballots, should the Conference consider this desirable. The Council recommends that the General Committee consider the other aspects of the election at an early date in the session of the Conference.
159. In the light of these recommendations, the Council proposed that the Conference adopt the revised timetable set out in document C 67/LIM/15.
160. The Council nominated Mrs. G. van Beekhoff van Selms, Associated Country Women of the World, to be chairman of the informal meeting of observers from nongovernmental organizations, which had been proposed for the afternoon of Monday 6 November.
161. The Council requested the General Rapporteur on the Work of the Technical Committees, in consultation with the Rapporteurs of the six Technical Committees, to prepare a report on the organization of the work of the Technical Committees in the light of the experience at the Fourteenth Session, drawing attention to any aproblems which had arisen in the course of the meetings of the Technical Committees. The Council would consider this report at a later Council Session with a view to improving the methods of work of the Technical Committees at the Fifteenth Session of the Conference in 1969.
162. The Council authorized the Director-General to invite Albania, Czechoslovakia and the U.S.S.R. to attend in an observer capacity the Fifteenth Session of the European Commission for the control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (April 1968).
163. The Council also expressed the desire that the Director-General again invite the countries mentioned in paragraph 162 which are all Member Nations of the United Nations to consider the desirability of joining or rejoining FAO.
164. Similarly, the Council agreed that Singapore could be invited to attend in an observer capacity the FAO Conference on Pig Production and Diseases in the Far East (Bangkok, 19–24 February 1968).
165. The Council authorized the Director-General to invite the U.S.S.R. to attend in an observer capacity the following FAO Fisheries Sessions, to be held in 1968: Third Session of the Committee on Fisheries (Rome, April 1968); Second Session of Sub-Committee on the Development of Co-operation with International Organizations concerned with Fisheries (Rome, 17–20 June 1968); Ninth Session of the General Fisheries Council for the Mediterranean (Split, Yugoslavia, 4–10 December 1967); First Session of the Indian Ocean Fishery Commission (probably September 1968).
166. The Council was informed that, acting under the provision of paragraph B.7 of the Statement of Principles Relating to the Granting of Observer Status to Nations, the Director-General has invited the U.S.S.R. to attend in an observer capacity an FAO Symposium on Crop Losses, (Rome, 2–6 October 1967).
167. The Council decided to convene its Fiftieth Session in Rome on 24 November 1967.

The African Development Bank (hereinafter referred to as “ADB”) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (hereinafter referred to as “FAO”) have already been co-operating on matters of common concern. As the occasions on which this co-operation is desirable are steadily increasing and in view of the large area of common interest between the two organizations, the President of ADB and the Director-General of FAO, subject to the approval of the governing bodies of ADB and FAO, are agreed upon the following guidelines which set forth the principles upon which a systematic approach to co-operative efforts between their respective organizations may be based.
SECTION I. The Scope of Co-operation between ADB and FAO
ADB and FAO will co-operate in the following fields, in countries of common membership:
Giving general assessments of the possibilities for agricultural development as a basis for providing guidance for ADB with respect to its operations.
Identifying projects which might be financed by ADB.
Assisting governments in the preparation of projects which might be financed by ADB.
Appraising projects referred to in (b) and (c) above.
Providing end-use supervision of the execution and operation of ADB-financed projects.
Arranging for technical assistance required for the implementation of ADB-financed projects.
SECTION II. Methods of Co-operation
1. ADB and FAO will keep each other informed of and where desirable consult with each other regarding activities of common interest.
2. ADB and FAO shall, to the extent permitted under their respective approved budgets, agree upon specific operations regarding which co-operation is desirable, and upon the extent and methods in which such co-operation shall be effected. ADB and FAO shall, to the maximum extent possible, assist each other in matters of common concern through the support of their respective Headquarters and field facilities.
General Review Missions
General review missions organized by ADB may be required to give specific attention to the agricultural sector. FAO will, in agreed cases, co-operate in the preparation of such missions and/or provide the services of specialists to take part in them.
ADB and FAO shall agree on identification missions to examine in specific countries the possibility of formulating particular projects which might be eligible for lending operations.
ADB may receive requests for loans requiring further preparation before they are considered. Similarly, as a result of identification missions, there may be need for further elaboration before such requests can be considered as a basis for loan operations. Where such preparation work is already at an advanced stage, FAO may co-operate with ADB in the undertaking of missions of limited duration. Where such preparation requires feasibility studies, ADB may request FAO to undertake or execute them as FAO may agree, ADB assuming the financing.
ADB will be responsible for the appraisal of projects upon the basis of which its financing decisions will be made. At the request of ADB, FAO may provide, as agreed, the services of FAO staff members or consultants to serve upon such appraisal missions.
End-Use Supervision of ADB Projects
ADB will be responsible for the disbursement of funds and the end-use supervision of the construction and maintenance of physical facilities, and to this end will be responsible for such review, as may be appropriate, of the specifications, bids and awards of contracts and for whatever inspections of the project are necessary in this connection. As may be agreed, FAO may provide the services of experts to participate in such supervision. FAO may, in the course of such supervision, advise ADB on the possibility of determining further phases in the implementation of the project and the desirability of preparing second-phase projects. ADB and FAO will consult each other on the results of such end-use supervision and the subsequent steps to be taken.
Planning of Missions
ADB and FAO shall co-operate in planning the missions referred to in sub-paragraphs (a) to (e) above and may hold periodic review meetings in order to co-ordinate such planning as far ahead as feasible. In particular, ADB and FAO shall consult each other upon the terms of reference, composition, duration, reports and recommendations of each mission. As appropriate, ADB and FAO shall consult each other on the persons most suitable to take part in such missions.
4. Co-operation in Training
ADB and FAO will endeavour, jointly or by assisting each other, to foster the growth of African expertise by associating African experts with missions set up under the scope and functions of this Memorandum of Understanding.
ADB and FAO will co-operate in the Organization of seminars, study-tours, and other types of technical training facilities to promote African expertise in the fields of food and agriculture.
5. Assistance in Project Implementation
As may be agreed in each case, and upon the request of the government concerned, FAO shall provide or arrange for technical assistance in the implementation of projects financed by ADB. Such assistance shall be furnished in accordance with paragraph 2(d) (iii) of Section III of this Memorandum of Understanding.
6. ADB/FAO Desk at ADB Headquarters
In order to facilitate the implementation of co-operative efforts, the Director-General of FAO will appoint suitable staff to be stationed in Abidjan who will work in co-operation with counterpart staff appointed by ADB and with other members of ADB staff. The FAO staff referred to above will maintain liaison with ADB regarding matters of common interest; assist ADB in reviewing projects; and participate, as appropriate and as agreed between ADB and FAO, in missions referred to in paragraph 3 above. In addition, such FAO staff in Abidjan and their ADB counterparts will be kept continuously informed of studies undertaken or planned by FAO for Africa and will also be advised of agricultural plans and problems of the African countries insofar as these are likely to affect the operations of ADB.
SECTION III. Financial Arrangements
1. Obligations of FAO
FAO shall inform ADB at the beginning of each biennium of the provisions in its current approved biennial budget for co-operative activities with ADB covered by this Memorandum of Understanding.
FAO shall, within the limits set by its biennial budget and as agreed with ADB, contribute to the co-operative activities by providing for service on missions of professional staff stationed at Headquarters or outposted in the field, or additional staff specifically recruited for the co-operative activities.
FAO shall, within the limits set by its biennial budget, assign staff to the ABD/FAO desk referred to in paragraph 6 of Section II above.
FAO shall bear the following expenses arising from co-operative activities with ADB.
FAO shall bear the cost of the salaries and allowances of its staff assigned to the ADB/FAO desk.
Whenever FAO staff take part in missions FAO shall bear the cost involved, except costs for international and local travel and subsistence costs as provided in paragraph 2(d)(i) below.
FAO will bear the invisible overhead costs and identifiable indirect costs arising from co-operative activities with ADB, except as provided in paragraph 2(d)(iii) and (d)(iv) below.
2. Obligations of ADB
ADB shall contribute to the co-operative activities by providing professional personnel matching at least the staff supplied by FAO under paragraph 1(b) of this Section.
ADB shall appoint counterpart staff to match the staff assigned to the ADB/FAO desk.
ADB shall provide office space for the FAO staff assigned to the ADB/FAO desk.
ADB shall bear the following expenses arising from co-operative activities with FAO:
The cost of international and local travel and subsistence costs of FAO staff, including FAO staff assigned to the ADB/FAO desk, when taking part in missions envisaged in paragraph 3(a) to (e) of Section II above.
The cost of secretarial staff and office space to service the FAO staff assigned to the ADB/FAO desk.
The cost of technical assistance directly required for the implementation of ADB-financed projects as provided for in paragraph 5 of Section II above, including an amount covering FAO's estimated administrative costs in arranging for such assistance. The amount covering such administrative costs shall be the equivalent of 12% of the direct cost of the assistance, except where assistance is provided under contract between FAO and some outside entity, in which event the amount will be fixed by agreement between FAO and ADB.
ADB will bear the cost of the production of documents and of translation undertaken by FAO in agreement with ADB.
SECTION IV. Miscellaneous provisions
ADB or FAO may, upon six month's written notice to the other party, terminate this Memorandum of Understanding.
2. Entry into force
This Memorandum of Understanding shall, after approval by the Board of Directors and ratification by the Board of Governors of ADB, and approval by the FAO Council, subject to confirmation by the FAO Conference, enter into force on the date on which it will have been signed by the President of ADB and the Director-General of FAO.
In accordance with Section III, paragraph 1, of this Memorandum of Understanding the maximum contribution by FAO to co-operative activities with ADB for the biennium 1968/1969 shall be, subject to approval of the relevant provisions of the budget by the FAO Conference, as follows:
Under Section III, paragraph 1(b), services of FAO staff up to a maximum of eight man-years.
Under Section III, paragraph 1(c), FAO assignment of two staff members to the ADB/FAO desk.
1. At this early stage, when the scope and nature of the Asian Development Bank's (ADB's) agricultural operations - as well as the dimensions and nature of financial resources therefor - still have to be defined, it is premature to propose any general agreement to the ADB's Board of Governors for ADB co-operation with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). At the same time, there has been need for FAO participation in the current survey of Asian agriculture being sponsored by the ADB and there are indications that ADB and FAO may have occasion in selected instances to co-operate in missions to the developing members of the ADB and in other ways. This memorandum is intended to permit expeditions and flexible implementation in those instances where the ADB and FAO agree that some combination of personnel in a mission or other co-operation is desirable.
2. It is the intention of the ADB and FAO that the two organizations will keep each other informed of operations of mutual interest and likely to involve joint participation in missions.
3. It is understood also that final decisions with respect to use of the ADB's resources must rest with the ADB.
4. The contents of this memorandum will not prejudice co-operation by either organization with other entities on the types of operation outlined in this memorandum.
5. It is recognized that this memorandum is of an interim nature and that review of its contents from time to time is desirable. It is envisaged that a meeting will take place around June 1968 for this purpose.
II. Areas of Possible Co-operation
6. FAO and ADB have already co-operated within the framework of the Regional Agricultural Survey undertaken as a basis for ADB's operations. It is envisaged that they may co-operate in the future in the identification of projects which might be considered for financing by ADB; in carrying out of feasibility studies and in assisting governments to prepare further such projects; in the appraisal of projects presented to ADB for financing; and in the review of progress of projects financed by ADB.
7. There may in addition be scope for co-operation between FAO and ADB in fields not specifically itemized above, such as general studies and technical assistance for the preparation, financing and execution of development projects and programs; such cases will not be covered in the scope of the arrangements indicated below and will have to be the subject of specific consultation as and when they arise.
III. Joint Participation in Missions
8. Co-operation in missions will be decided on a case-by-case basis. Where an ADB-FAO co-operative mission is deemed appropriate, the following assignment of responsibility will normally apply. Responsibility as here used involves responsibility for leadership, administrative arrangements, organization of missions, terms of reference, staffing and reports.
Initiation of action for co-operation in missions may be by ADB or FAO as indicated hereunder; the implementation thereof will require concurrence of both parties.
Country missions will be the responsibility of ADB; the ADB may seek FAO participation where deemed appropriate.
The organization of co-operative project identification and project preparation missions can be initiated by either the ADB or FAO with such assignment of responsibility and on such terms as ADB and FAO may in each specific case agree.
Project appraisal missions following submission of loan applications will be the responsibility of ADB; the ADB may seek FAO participation where deemed appropriate.
Reviews of projects already financed by ADB will be an ADB responsibility; the ADB may seek FAO participation where deemed appropriate.
Responsibility for other missions connected to activities referred to in paragraph 7 will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
9. In all missions undertaken in co-operation and without prejudice to responsibility as indicated above, there will be consultation between the two organizations on staffing, terms of reference, composition and duration, reporting, and recommendations.
10. In the circumstances indicated in Para. 1, the procedures outlined here do not provide for arrangements for FAO personnel to be employed for, and assigned to, co-operative operations on a continuous basis; however, it is evident that the success of co-operative operations will be enhanced the greater the continuity of the staff engaged in these operations. This will, therefore, require advance planning to the maximum extent possible by both institutions, and periodic meetings and consultations.
V. Terms Applicable to ADB-FAO Co-operation in Cases Where Such Co-operation is Deemed Appropriate
11. The FAO has indicated that cost sharing in respect of FAO expenses in any co-operative mission, would have to take into account the following items of initial expense in the FAO;
salaries of FAO staff engaged in missions either recruited for the purpose by FAO or of staff detailed from FAO,
cost of travel and subsistence of the FAO team members,
cost of co-ordination within the FAO framework,
cost of secretarial assistance,
overhead costs, direct or indirect,
cost of document preparation and translation.
12. Within the limits of present budgetary arrangements, the order of total expenditure on the types of co-operation action contemplated above may not probably exceed a ceiling of $500,000 from now to the close of the biennium 1968/69. Within this ceiling and during this period, arrangements for sharing expenses of co-operation will be according to the following terms:
Except as specified in paragraphs 13 and 14, the direct expense of FAO personnel, including salaries, allowances and other benefits, engaged in co-operative missions led by either the ADB or FAO will be shared equally by FAO and the ADB, respectively. In addition, ADB will pay ten percent of this direct expense towards the costs of FAO's co-ordination, secretarial assistance, and overheads.
The cost of travel, and subsistence expenses of FAO personnel while serving as members of co-operative missions led by the ADB will be borne or provided for by the ADB at ADB rates.
The cost of travel, and subsistences expenses of FAO personnel while serving as members of co-operative missions led by the FAO will be provided for by FAO at FAO rates and will be shared equally with the ADB.
The cost of any special document reproduction and translation undertaken by FAO at the request of ADB will be borne by ADB.
13. When a particular project preparation by a co-operative mission involves continuous work in the field of more than ten man-months by FAO personnel, ADB will pay or provide for all direct expenses of FAO services (salaries, allowances, subsistence and other expenses except travel) in excess of this quantity (adding ten percent of the direct expenses to share in FAO's administrative expenses).
14. In cases of FAO co-operation in fields referred to under Sec. II, Para. I, the above terms will not apply, and cost sharing on an ad hoc basis will be arranged.
VI. Entry into Effect
15. These proposals will enter into effect following approval by the ADB Board of Directors and the FAO Council.
