In 2002, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) delivered three Judgments, made 18 Orders and had 26 contentious cases pending before it. On 29 October, the ICJ President informed the General Assembly that the Court's docket remained full and its activities sustained, and that the Court had again witnessed an increase in the number of cases on its General List. Measures taken to improve the Court's procedure to expedite the handling of cases had proved beneficial. The President called for easier access of the poorest States to the Court through the Trust Fund to Assist States in the Settlement of Disputes, and appealed to all States able to do so to increase resources available to the Fund. He concluded that ICJ could make a substantial contribution to the maintenance of peace between nations.
