image of Yearbook of the United Nations 1996

The Yearbook of the United Nations stands as the authoritative reference work on the activities and concerns of the Organization. Based on official UN documents, the Yearbook provides comprehensive coverage of political and security matters, human rights issues, economic and social questions, legal issues, and institutional, administrative and budgetary matters.




During the year, the United Nations was involved in efforts to solve environmental problems threatening the Earth’s land masses, forests, fauna and flora, oceans and atmosphere. A variety of activities took place in follow-up to "Agenda 21," the wide-ranging action document adopted at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in June 1992.
