image of Yearbook of the United Nations 2013

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

In 2013, the five UN regional commissions continued to provide technical cooperation, including advisory services, to Member States, promote programmes and projects and provide training to enhance national capacity-building. Three of those bodies—the Economic Commission for Africa (eca), the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (escap) and the Economic Commission for Europe (ece)— 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 2013. The executive secretaries of the commissions held periodic meetings to exchange views and coordinate activities and positions on major development issues.
