The Yearbook of the United Nations details the many activities of the Organization and it’s 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 their efforts to deal with matters of pressing concern in a variety of areas. Each volume is fully indexed and reproduces all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions issued during the year.




In 2000, differences among Member States persisted on various disarmament issues. The Conference on Disarmament remained unable to take any action on the agenda items during its 2000 session due to continuing disagreement on what would constitute a balanced programme of work, especially regarding nuclear disarmament and the prevention of an arms race in outer space. The Disarmament Commission, in view of its inability to achieve consensus between 1997 and 1999 on the agenda and objectives of a fourth special session of the General Assembly devoted to disarmament, considered in 2000 ways and means to achieve nuclear disarmament and practical confidence-building measures in the field of conventional arms.
