FAO RECEIVES ECHO FUNDS FOR SEED PROGRAM 
---------------------------------------- 
 
2.   DURING THE JAN 31 WFP/ZAGREB MEETING, UNHCR 
ANNOUNCED THAT ECHO IS FUNNELING SOME FUNDS TO 
FAO THAT WERE ORIGINALLY EARMARKED FOR UNHCR. 
ONE OF FAO'S CONSULTANTS IN ZAGREB TOLD DART THAT 
THEY EXPECT TO RECEIVE 3.5 MILLION ECUS 
(APPROXIMATELY USD 4.27 MILLION) FOR THE SEED 
PROGRAM.  UNHCR'S DEPUTY CHIEF OF MISSION FOR B-H 
REMARKED THAT THE REALLOCATION PUTS UNHCR IN A 
DIFFICULT POSITION, AS FAO IS SOMEWHAT OF AN 
IMPLEMENTING PARTNER IN A SENSE.  HOWEVER, UNHCR 
RECOGNIZES THAT THE SEED PROJECTS ARE CRUCIAL, SO 
IT HAS AGREED TO THE DIVERSION OF ECHO FUNDS TO 
                       UNCLASSIFIED

5.   UNHCR'S DEPUTY CHIEF OF MISSION FOR B-H 
REPORTED THAT THE OFFICE OF DISPLACED PERSONS AND 
REFUGEES (ODPR) IN MOSTAR HAS "RELUCTANTLY 
AGREED" TO ALLOW FUEL CONVOYS TO MOVE FROM 
METKOVIC THROUGH CENTRAL B-H AGAIN.  UNHCR 
SLIGHTLY REVISED THEIR DISTRIBUTION TARGETS IN 
ORDER TO PLACATE THE BOSNIAN CROATS IN THE ZENICA 
REGION WHO FELT THAT DISTRIBUTION WAS SKEWED IN 
FAVOR OF THE BOSNIAN MUSLIMS (SEE REFTELS A, B, 
AND C FOR BACKGROUND).  THE FIRST CONVOY IN 
SEVERAL MONTHS TO TRANSPORT THE INA-CONTRACTED 
FUEL FROM METKOVIC IS SCHEDULED FOR TUZLA ON FEB 
1.  (NOTE:  REFTEL C REPORTED THAT UNPROFOR HAD 
AGREED TO SUPPLY FUEL TO UNHCR FROM VITEZ UNDER A 
DEAL REACHED IN EARLY JANUARY BETWEEN THE TWO UN 
BODIES.  UNHCR'S DEPUTY CHIEF OF MISSION FOR B-H 
CLARIFIED THAT THE JAN 18 FUEL CONVOY FROM VITEZ 
TO SARAJEVO WAS A "ONE-OFF DEAL", AND THAT THIS 
NEW BREAKTHROUGH WITH MOSTAR'S ODPR WOULD RESTART 
THE DELIVERY OF FUEL THROUGH FEDERATION-HELD 
TERRITORY.

6.   DURING AN EU MEETING IN MOSTAR ON JAN 21, AN 
AGREEMENT WAS SIGNED BY BOTH THE CROATIAN AND 
BOSNIAC SIDES OF MOSTAR REGARDING THE HANDLING OF 
PEOPLE WHO ILLEGALLY CROSS THE CONFRONTATION LINE 
BETWEEN EAST AND WEST MOSTAR.  THE NEW POLICY 
DIFFERENTIATES BETWEEN WOMEN, CHILDREN AND MEN 
WHO ARE NOT OF MILITARY AGE, AND MEN OF MILITARY 
AGE AND SOLDIERS.  FOR THOSE IN THE FORMER 
CATEGORY THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURE IS TO BE 
FOLLOWED:  A) AFTER ARREST THE WEU POLICE WILL BE 
INFORMED.  IF NO OTHER CRIMINAL ACT HAS BEEN 
COMMITTED, THE PERSON MAY ONLY BE HELD FOR UP TO 
2 HOURS, AND THEN MUST BE TAKEN IMMEDIATELY TO 
THEIR OWN SIDE; B) IF THE ARRESTED PERSON HAS 
COMMITTED ANY OTHER CRIMINAL ACT, THE WEU POLICE 
WILL BE INFORMED AND ALLOWED TO MONITOR THE 
SUBSEQUENT LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.  THE DETAINED

UPDATE ON WFP FOOD PIPELINE

9.   WFP ANNOUNCED THAT MANY OF THE MAIN 
WAREHOUSES IN B-H ARE EXPERIENCING A "HAND TO 
MOUTH" DISTRIBUTION PROBLEM.  FORTUNATELY, THE 
PREDICTED SHORTAGES OF BULK COMMODITIES INCLUDING 
FLOUR AND BEANS/PULSES WERE AVERTED BY AN EU 
DONATION.  THE EU DONATION HAS ALSO HELPED TO 
COVER SHORTAGES IN THE HI-QUALITY FOODS INCLUDING 
SUGAR, MEAT, FISH, AND CHEESE.  WFP REPORTED THAT 
FOOD STOCKS SHOULD BE SUFFICIENT FOR B-H THROUGH 
MARCH AND APRIL.  HOWEVER, WFP IS CONCERNED ABOUT 
THE LACK OF PLEDGES FROM MAY ON.  IMMEDIATE
