image of Yearbook of the United Nations 2003

This unique publication, the fifty-seventh volume of the Yearbook of the United Nations, chronicles all the major activities undertaken in the United Nations system in the year 2003. Some of the issues faced in that particularly challenging year include the rift in the Security Council over the use of force by a United States-led coalition against Iraq because of its alleged retention of banned weapons of mass destruction, the terrorist attack on the Organization’s headquarters in Baghdad, the establishment by the Secretary-General of the High-level Panel on Threats, Challenges and Change, and the Security Council’s adoption of a declaration on combating terrorism.

International drug control

During 2003, the United Nations, through the Commission on Narcotic Drugs, the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB)and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) reaffirmed its commitment to strengthen international cooperation and increase efforts to counter the world drug problem. Drug control activities throughout the UN system focused mainly on implementation of the 1999 Action Plan for the Implementation of the Declaration on the Guiding Principles of Drug Demand Reduction, which served as a guide for Member States in adopting strategies and programmes for reducing illicit drug demand in order to achieve significant results by 2008.
