The United Nations Korean reconstruction Agency, under the direction of a United Nations Agent-General, was established to administer the relief and rehabilitation programme of the United Nations in Korea. This programme was financed by voluntary contributions from Member and non-member Governments. Specialized agencies and non-governmental organizations have also been asked to contribute facilities, advice and services. The General Assembly "established the United Nations Korean Reconstruction Agency (UNKRA) under the direction of a United Nations Agent General, who shall be assisted by one or more deputies. The Agent General shall be responsible to the General Assembly for the conduct (in accordance with the polities established by the General Assembly and having regard to such general policy recommendation as the United Nations Commission for the Unification and Rehabilitation of Korea may make) of the programme of relief and rehabilitation in Korea, as that programme may be determined from time to time by the General Assembly.” (A/RES/410).The Agency also worked with the United Nations Commission for the Unification and Rehabilitation of Korea (UNCURK AG-049) and the Advisory Committee. It ceased operating in 1959, and liquidation was completed in 1960.
