image of Yearbook of the United Nations 2012

With its comprehensive coverage of political and security matters, human rights issues, economic and social questions, legal issues, and institutional, administrative and budgetary matters, the Yearbook of the United Nations stands as the most authoritative reference work 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, putting all of these in a narrative context of United Nations consideration, decision and action.




In 2012, the United Nations continued its work on various aspects of statistics, mainly through the Statistical Commission and the Statistics Division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs. In March, the Commission endorsed both the action plan to implement the Global Strategy to Improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics and the pilot process for the core set of environment statistics. It approved the development of manuals on methodological guidelines on natural gas statistics compilation and welcomed the establishment of a worldwide database on natural gas statistics; supported the establishment of a city group on statistics for economies based on natural resources; decided to include information and communications technology statistics in its multi-annual work programme; and endorsed the generic national quality assurance framework template and the Busan Action Plan for Statistics.
