Item 3a of the Provisional Agenda
In line with its mandate, an extract of the Programme Implementation Report 2002-2003 (PIR) covering Major Programmes 2.1, 2.2 and 2.5 is submitted for the information of the Committee. It is recalled that the PIR is a Conference document, designed to provide synthetic information to the Governing Bodies on achievements in the past biennium.
The reported achievements for each Major Programme are preceded by a recapitulative table on implementation results in financial terms, including related field activities. Annex 1 summarizes the completion status of planned and unplanned outputs in the Programme of Work and Budget.
It may be noted that the entire text of the PIR is available for consultation from FAO’s Internet Web-site, at the following address: <http://www.fao.org/pir/>. A database can also be consulted at the same address, covering all planned outputs for the 2002-03 biennium, and their implementation status.
