With its comprehensive coverage of political and security matters, human rights issues, economic and social questions, legal issues, and institutional, administrative and budgetary matters, this publication is the most authoritative reference work available on the activities and concerns of the Organization. Fully indexed, the Yearbook includes the texts of all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions and decisions. This latest volume, the sixty-first, highlights the attention given by the United Nations in 2007 to conflicts in Afghanistan, Central Africa and in the Darfur region, as well as instability in the Middle East, along with the challenges posed by poverty, gender inequality, uneven development, climate change and terrorism.




During 2007, the United Nations continued its work in the area of statistics mainly through the activities of the Statistical Commission and the United Nations Statistics Division. In March, the Statistical Commission adopted the Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Censuses, Revision 2; the System of Environmental and Economic Accounting for Water; and the package of recommendations on the update of the System of National Accounts, 1993. The Commission recognized the importance of statistical capacity-building and the need for continuous improvement of the statistics required to track progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (mdgs). It also approved its draft multi-year programme of work for 2007-2010.
