If the UNRRA Central Committee does not designate another agency or if the organization designated by the UNRRA Central Committee has ceased its activities, the Secretary-General of the Organization shall designate the Organization most likely to advance the objectives for which UNRRA receives contributions from its members. After consultation with the Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions and obtaining the agreement of the Committee, the Secretary-General and the Director-General of UNRRA signed the following agreement. UNRRA, the first post-war international organization, was an inter-allied and civilian mutual aid organization of an essentially technical nature. It supervised imports into the liberated countries and created reserves of industrial and consumer goods that were then transported to the reconstruction regions. In agreement with the Allied military authorities, UNRRA also assumed responsibility for the supply and repatriation of prisoners and persons deported to their countries of origin during the war. The UNRRA Regional Committee for Europe organized the shipment of clothing and food and provided financial assistance to countries where it was needed. .
