image of Yearbook of the United Nations 2007

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.



Regional economic and social activities

In 2007, the five regional commissions of the United Nations continued to provide technical cooperation, including advisory services, to their member States. They also promoted programmes and projects and provided training to enhance national capacitybuilding in various sectors. Three of them—the Economic Commission for Africa (eca), the Economic Commission for Europe (ece) and the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (escap)— held regular sessions during the year. The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (eclac) and the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (escwa) did not meet in 2007, but were scheduled to do so in 2008.
