UNITED NATIONS GROUP OF EXPERTS ON GEOGRAPHICAL NAMES (UNGEGN)
Recognizing the need to adopt a single system for the transliteration of Amharic into the Roman alphabet,
Recommends that the Amharic to English Transliteration System (2nd revised edition, August 1962) adopted by the Imperial Ethiopian Mapping and Geography Institute be accepted as the standard international system for the writing of Ethiopian geographical names in the Roman alphabets.
Note. This resolution is a follow-up of res. I/17.
