The 1997 edition of the Yearbook of the United Nations details the many activities of the Organization and its organs, programmes and bodies, as they are carried out in all corners of the globe. It gives an account of their endeavours to create better and more peaceful conditions for all mankind and record their efforts to deal with matters of pressing concern in a variety of areas, including peacekeeping and peacemaking, disarmament, human rights, trade and development, control of drug abuse and illicit trafficking, crime prevention, assistance to refugees and other vulnerable populations. This 1,652 pages volume is fully indexed and reproduces all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions issued during the year.



Operational activities for development

The total income of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)—the central United Nations funding body for technical assistance to developing countries—amounted to $2,323 million in 1997, down by 1 per cent from $2,349 million in 1996. However, contributions to UNDP regular resources fell by 10.3 per cent to $760.9 million, largely due to the reduced level of pledges for 1997 and the strength of the United States dollar. Total 1997 expenditures under regular resources rose to $961 million from $847 million in 1996.
