This is the sixtieth volume of the most comprehensive and authoritative reference work on the activities of the Organization, covering 2006. This fully indexed Yearbook, reproduces in their entirety the texts of, and votes on, all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions and decisions. Its 33 chapters deeply cover developments in the main political and security questions; human rights; economic and social questions; legal questions; and institutional, administrative and budgetary questions.



Asia and the Pacific

In 2006, the United Nations continued to face significant political and security challenges in Asia and the Pacific, especially in Afghanistan and Iraq, as it sought to restore peace and stability and promote economic and social development in the region. In Afghanistan, further progress was made to advance that country’s development and strengthen the rule of law. In that regard, more than 60 countries attended the London Conference on Afghanistan (31 January–1 February), pledging $10.5 billion in new financial assistance.
