The Committee notes with concern the increase in borrowing from the accounts of closed peacekeeping missions with cash surpluses in order to meet the cash flow requirements of active peacekeeping missions with cash deficits, mainly because of the unpredictability in the receipt of assessed contributions. (...) The Advisory Committee notes that the Secretary-General proposes either to borrow, or to transfer permanently, a portion of the $335.5 million unencumbered balance of the special account for the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) as at 30 June 2011 in order to settle the amount owed to troop- and police-contributing countries by closed peacekeeping missions that are in cash deficit.

In this regard, the Committee also considers that, in doing so, some proposals that were made in the past, could be revisited such the proposal to apply available credits against outstanding contributions.

Also, in agricultural communities a disaster like a flood or drought usually hits lenders as well as borrowers, making credit scarce just when it is needed most. (...) Moreover, institutions such as the Grameen Bank sometimes offer training or basic literacy programmes that can make the loans more useful to the borrower.
