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.



Regional economic and social activities

The five UN regional commissions in 2012 continued to provide technical cooperation, including advisory services, to their member States, promote programmes and projects and provide training to enhance national capacity building. Four of them held regular sessions during the year—the Economic Commission for Africa (eca), the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (escap), the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (eclac) and the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (escwa). The Economic Commission for Europe did not meet in 2012. The Executive Secretaries of the commissions held periodic meetings to exchange views and coordinate activities and positions on major development issues.
