Economic and social development

Although most people associate the United Nations with the issues of peace and security, the vast majority of the Organization’s resources are in fact devoted to advancing the Charter’s pledge to “promote higher standards of living, full employment and conditions of economic and social progress and development”. United Nations development efforts have profoundly affected the lives and well-being of millions of people throughout the world. Guiding the United Nations endeavours is the conviction that lasting international peace and security are possible only if the economic and social well-being of people everywhere is assured.
