image of Yearbook of the United Nations 2005

This unique publication, the Sixtieth Anniversary Edition, chronicles all the major activities of the United Nations system, including those of intergovernmental and expert bodies, major reports, Secretariat activities and, in selected cases, the views of the Member States. It presents results of the 2005 World Summit Conference, which gathered leaders from 170 countries to assess UN achievements and progress made towards implementation of the 2000 Millennium Declaration, and adopted measures contained in a Summit Outcome Document for the Organization’s future course. This 1,716 pages volume is fully indexed and reproduces all major resolutions and decisions of the General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council issued during the year together with the voting records. The publication is an indispensable and authoritative reference tool for the research community, diplomats, government officials and the public at large.



Development policy and international economic cooperation

Global economic growth continued into 2005, but at a slower pace than the 4 per cent recorded in 2004, and was expected to fall to around 3 per cent. Much of that deceleration was attributable to the slowdown in developed economies, although some developing countries were also showing signs of losing momentum. The moderate slowdown in the global economy was an indication that the world’s main engine of growth, the United States economy, might not be able to drive global growth without support from other parts of the world, at a time when the euro was stagnating and Japan’s growth showed a moderate deceleration.
