With its comprehensive coverage of political and security matters, human rights issues, economic and social questions, legal issues, and institutional, administrative and budgetary matters, the Yearbook of the United Nations is the most authoritative reference work available on the activities and concerns of the Organization.

In 1990, the United Nations undertook the first five-year review and appraisal of the Nairobi Forward-looking Strategies for the Advancement of Women, which were adopted in 1985 by the World Conference to Review and Appraise the Achievements of the United Nations Decade for Women (1976-1985). The Commission on the Status of Women, which carried out the review and appraisal at an extended thirty-fourth session (Vienna, 26 February–9 March), considered the first biennial report of the Secretary-General on progress made by the UN system in implementing the Strategies and made recommendations for action in the priority areas of equality, development and peace.
