I've just checked the handbook for our 04 1.2 16v (from memory, the info for our 02 was the same.)
Apart from the sporty models (2.0 and 3.0 v6) all the Clio II's should be on an 18K/2 years service interval. The timing belt is officially due at 72K or 5 years (though don't ask me how 5 years fits in with a 2 year interval
This is for the Clio II Phase II (which your 2002 model will be.) I don't know if the Phase I (same basic body shape but without the angular headlights) is different .
Your timing belt is just about due for replacement through age rather than mileage. If you're looking to change the car before it hits 10 years old or another 72K miles, then it costs you nothing extra to get it done that bit earlier anyway.
