The Yearbook of the United Nations, comprehensive and reliable, is the primary reference work on the United Nations. This fifty-third volume of the Yearbook details the many activities of the Organization and its organs, programmes and bodies in 1999. It provides an overview of the major challenges the Organization has addressed in a variety of areas, including peacekeeping and peacemaking; disarmament; human rights; refugees and displaced persons; international crime and corruption; natural resources and energy. This 1,500 pages volume is fully indexed and reproduces all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions issued during the year. It will be a valuable resource for diplomats, government officials, scholars, journalists and others with a serious interest in international and United Nations affairs.




In 1999, the General Assembly held its twentyfirst special session to consider progress in implementing the Programme of Action adopted by the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development. The year of that five-year review, known as ICPD+5, also saw the day of 6 billion—12 October—when it was estimated that the 6 billionth baby was born. A third population milestone in 1999 was the thirtieth anniversary of the founding of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the largest internationally funded source of population assistance and the lead United Nations organization for advancing the ICPD Programme of Action.
