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.



International Monetary Fund (IMF)

In 2005, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) continued to work with its members to foster sustainable growth and financial stability through surveillance activities and policy advice; lending, in support of stabilization and reform programmes, and providing technical assistance in formulating sound policies and building robust institutions. IMF supported low-income developing countries through low-interest loans under the poverty reduction and growth facility (PRGF), and through debt relief under the enhanced Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Initiative. It also continued to counter money-laundering and combat the financing of terrorism.
